Hot & Not
Five-year-old Murtaza Ahmadi of Afghanistan had the world buzzing a few weeks ago when he wore a blueand-white plastic bag with Lionel Messi’s Number 10 written on it.
This week, the youngster got to wear the real thing – and the shirt was signed by Messi. Who knows, Ahmadi could soon be plying his trade in the best league in the world. For weeks, Tokyo Sexwale has refused to step away from the Fifa presidential race, insisting that he can ascend to the top post.
On Friday, hours before the elections in Zurich, Sexwale threw in the towel. Instead of embarrassing himself, he should have listened and stepped aside when he was advised to do so.
