Kickettes, please take this opportunity to enjoy Iker Casillas, dressed casually in beige stripes and standing in a reverent manner next to a selection of men (above) and large, important rocks.
You will note that it is unlike us to promote images such as these, our remit being something rather more in this area but this was a special occasion and we are duty bound to report. FYI, Iker and the rellies were in hometown Navalacruz, where a ceremony and presentation was taking place to commemorate his overwhelming hotness.
Okay, so it was a ceremony honouring his footballing prowess, but hey. The hotness is there to be commemorated too.
And commemorate we will. Just as soon as we find our house keys/pants/hip flask.

Now we know why there are beds in the Real Madrid training complex – they’re for the players to hide under when the team begins the season by dropping points against Mallorca. (Especially since Barcelona made certain of their three; goals from Messi, Iniesta and Daveeeeed Villa supplied a convincing victory away at Racing Santander.) FYI, Barca’s Victor Valdes (and our EXI keeper) contributed via this awesome penalty save whilst preserving his sexy. Elsewhere in La Liga, Sevilla’s 4-1 away win at Levante ensured they hold top spot.
Phew. That was a lot of official sounding reportage for a bank holiday Monday. But we’ve started, so we might as well go on.
After yesterday’s extensive study of magazine covers, we continue our theme of photo fame with Kaka, seen in this series of images modelling what we shall politely refer to as ‘casualwear’ for the Adidas SLVR Fall/Winter 2010 campaign.
