Torres: 35 strange questions



El Pais, the best-selling newspaper in Spain, has been conducting a series of quick-fire question and answer interviews with members of the Spanish national squad throughout the World Cup and last week it was the turn of Fernando Torres.

El Nino answered 35 questions his teammates had already been grilled on.

Yes, and I'll leave it at that.

(Thinks about it a lot) I don't know, to tell you the truth. I don't remember anyone in particular.
