Brazilian Marcelo should be proud of running tirelessly across the track for 90 minutes. Spain’s captain Sergio Ramos should be glad his brutal, but cunning, tackle put Mohamed Salah out of action. Together, the two Real Madrid players exhibit the Champion’s League Trophy in Madrid’s Cibeles Square. In all this, spare a mite of compassion for Liverpool’s goalie, the hapless Loris Karius.
WTA lovelies who thought Serena would be out for long after childbirth got a jolt when the indefatigable Williams arrived at the French Open in her “catsuit 2.0”, also dedicated, somewhat clumsily, to all women sufferers. Think it’s too non-tennis? Rewind to Mary Pierce’s raiment from ’97!
Didn’t we all envy Arjun Rampal, much before he took his stony visage to films, for marrying the ethereal Mehr Jessia? Twenty years on, they seemed a fixity, like a rock. Till now, when news of a separation bursts upon us, with a sober statement saying ‘finis’.
When Shibani Dandekar invited dancers up on the stage at a cricket ratings award, two punters leapt up on to the stage. Chris Gayle, born swinging his bat to the rhythms of Calypso is a natural mover we know. But has Shikhar Dhawan dancing credentials? His wrestling raps on the thighs are ugly, and wedding bhangra moves just won’t do.
If one beauty is petite, the other is Amazonian. And the man to curl his free-kicks between them effortlessly, that too under the same roof, is a bulkier Ronaldinho. No, dual matrimony to Beatriz and Priscilla is untrue. Evidently in fine fettle, shouldn’t he be terrorising penalty boxes with Neymar in Russia?
Some are born to the swimsuit; some are forced into it and simper miserably to make a point. Blow-haired and loose limbed, the girl with the most oomph in Bollywood (as matters stand, and they stand with sinuosity), Disha Patani, can take out a few of Rio’s top talents. One grouse with this Instagram snap—the shades have no work; those eyes, lit with light, are part of the beach appeal. As for rumours of a secret holiday with Tiger Shroff, expect Disha to muscle her way out.
The English, probably sick of over-hyping their football side every World Cup year have done the
opposite and lambasted 23-year-old winger Raheem Sterling for sporting a gun tattoo. The Manchester City player’s dad died in gun violence when he was two, a fact the tabloids didn’t give much thought to.
