What if, some of the above mentioned sports stars, are living a ‘normal life’ today; they are still haunted by those dark days of infidelity and not-so true love. Even though, we can argue of not interfering in their personal zones, atleast these sports stars can lay down a symbol of true love.
If you are the idols for many, then prove it! Off the pitch.
