Just think: this time next week, we’ll no longer have to use things like Fernando Torres’ family to distract you from the otherwise lacklustre off season news, gossip and rumour mills.

Score one for the universe.

‘Ballers & Bubbas On Breaks: Fernando Torres & Family

Grrr…we hate when we have to watermark pics like this, too.

We’re all suckers for a man with a baby, but day-um, when it’s a shirtless Fernando Torres on an Ibiza beach with two kids – his son, Leo, and daughter, Nora – there is no higher (or hotter) ‘ballers and bubbas summit.

Honestly, could this photo get any better, Kickettes?

What we love most in particular is Fer’s facial expression: resigned to the fact that, in about two hours, his limbs will be limp from all the lifting small children out of the water because they can’t swim energy he’s about to exert.

Stewart Downing & Friend: Shopping, Not Swotting

Stewart Downing and his girlfriend (?) went shopping in Manchester city centre on Monday, the 28th, which doesn’t sound like normal form for a player in the midst of prepping for the Euros alongside his international teammates.

We loathe ourselves for even saying this but, per The Daily Mail, England’s first official day of training was two days ago, held at Arsenal’s London Colney grounds.

Although Tuesday in London ain’t the same as Monday in Manchester, let’s not lose sight of what’s really important here: Downing’s mystery girl. Based on outward appearances only, she seems like the low maintenance kind of gal.

Good for him. He of all people could use less dramz in his life.

UPDATE: His mystery gal is apparently his sis, Natalie. Cheers for the spot, DSS & Sophie!

It’s a good thing Aitor Ocio has his abs to fall back on because starting next season, he’s out of a job at Athletic Bilbao. Gainful employers, now’s your time to step forward and hire this man’s bodily services – at a cut price, no less. Image: vanitatis.
