Tusiime Daphine Looks Incredible in the new photoshoot

Don’t be alarmed by the following statement, but I’m beginning to suspect that Tusiime Daphine might be a vampire. I mean, think about it, she hasn’t really aged a day in the last twenty or so years. She looks basically just as good as she did in Swordfish and like that for close to five years. There’s definitely some sort of sorcery at work here.

Now, I guess the thing you’ve got to consider is, do you want to get close to Daphine knowing that she might be a vampire? Don’t get me wrong, I think there’s a part of all of us that wants to achieve immortality, but it’s gotta be a grind, man. I can’t imagine having to forage for blood every ding dong day of the week. It’s gotta get old after a while.

One thing that never gets old, literally, is Tusiime Daphine. I don’t think vampires are real, so I don’t actually think she’s a vampire, but just think about it. Something’s up. Something potentially dangerous. And also very sexy. That’s a potent combination. If you could bottle that, you’d have something sweeter than Tusiime Daphine!

Ronaldinho retires from football as the former Barcelona, PSG, AC Milan and Brazil superstar calls time on a glittering playing career aged 37

By Press Association Sport Staff

Brazilian World Cup winner Ronaldinho has retired from football, his brother and agent has confirmed.

Ronaldinho, 37, has not played for a professional team since leaving Fluminense in 2015.

The former Barcelona star, part of the triumphant Brazil 2002 World Cup squad, won the Champions League in 2006 – a year after having collected the Ballon d’Or.

Roberto Assis confirmed the news of his brother’s decision in a column for Brazil media outlet O Globo and revealed plans for farewell tribute events following the 2018 World Cup.

‘He has stopped, it is ended,’ Assis said. ‘Let’s do something pretty big and nice (for his farewell) after the Russia World Cup, probably in August.

‘We will do various events in Brazil, Europe and Asia and, of course, we are arranging something with the Brazilian team as well.’

Assis, who confirmed sponsors Nike would also be involved in Ronaldinho’s farewell events, added: ‘The fact that he has been Barcelona’s ambassador for 10 years makes it a lot easier out there. He is wanted there and here (back in Brazil).’

Ronaldinho started his career with Gremio before moving to Paris St Germain in 2001. After leaving Barcelona, the Brazilian also had a spell at AC Milan where he won the Serie A title in 2010/11.
