The Daily Telegraph has a story on its site about former Golden Boot winner Ronaldo (the original, fat one) who is to star as himself in a movie due to be made in Lebanon.
There’s plenty of potential for mirth in the simple facts of the matter: Would any child really dream of the toothy striker without waking up in a cold sweat? Does this mean his football career is finally over? Is he really still only 32?
I could go on.
But the thing that really grabbed my attention was the revelation there is a Brazil-Iran Chamber of Commerce.
What on earth do they discuss?
Presumably their time is not spent comparing sales of bikinis and Havaianas in Rio and Tehran…
