twatter post

Everyone knows about Babel, Kaka and Darren Bent's twitter accounts, but I was messing about on twitter before and found loads more players on there willing to give us amazing insights into the world of a professional footballer. None of these are verified, but idk you guys, they seem so realistic they can't be fakes?!?!1!

French football star Franck Ribery admits sleeping with underage girl as child prostitute scandal grows

The sex scandal engulfing France's international football team took a disturbing twist today as Franck Ribery admitted sleeping with an under-age prostitute.

It came as 22-year-old Karim Benzema was named as another suspect, along with Hatem Ben Arfa, the 23-year-old Marseilles striker.

They all join Sidney Govou, the 30-year-old Lyon winger, who is the fourth player allegedly involved in the crimes.

Although Ribery, a married 27-year-old star, denied knowing that the girl was under 18 when he began seeing her, he could still face charges along with his teammates.

All are suspected of having 'regular sex' with the unnamed French Moroccan after being introduced to her at the Zaman Café, a notorious nightclub on the Champs Elysee in Paris.

Ribery - widely considered to be France's best player - told examining magistrates that he 'saw the girl over a number of months in 2009'.

This contradicts earlier claims that he and his team mates were solely being interviewed as witnesses in the child sex probe.

2010 FIFA World Cup™ to pioneer 3D technology

For the first time in the history of the FIFA World Cup™, the action on the field at next year's tournament will be broadcast using the next-generation technology 3D. FIFA today (3 December 2009) announced that it had signed a media rights agreement with Sony, an official FIFA Partner, to deliver 3D images from up to 25 matches of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™. To this end, FIFA will use the best expertise available in its production in 3D, and take advantage of Sony’s technologies and knowhow in the area of 3D.

This groundbreaking deal means that viewers watching the matches on Sony’s 3D products will experience the sheer immediacy and visual clarity of the action as if they were on the pitch themselves. FIFA is working on whether a live right will be offered in the coming months.

“This propels the football fan into a whole new viewing dimension and marks the dawning of a new era in the broadcasting of sport,” said FIFA Secretary General Jérôme Valcke. “We are proud that the FIFA World Cup can serve as a platform for advancing technology and the viewing experience, and are truly fortunate to have Sony as a partner in this endeavour.”

“The transition to 3D is underway, and, we, at Sony, intend to be leaders in every aspect. Our sponsorship of the FIFA World Cup allows us to leverage our cutting-edge 3D technology and premier products with dazzling content to produce a unique and totally compelling viewing experience. 3D viewers around the world will feel as though they are inside the stadiums in South Africa, watching the games in person,” said Sir Howard Stringer, Chairman, CEO and President of Sony Corporation.

Sony Pictures Entertainment will produce and distribute the official 3D film of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ after the event.
