We could have sworn Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand had a few things scheduled in his diary this month besides becoming a village chief – like attending the McRooney wedding and possibly getting married himself, but for the moment, he’s just working on the tan.
Rio’s been spotted on the beaches in Israel this weekend, along with his brother Anton and former Leeds player Jody Morris. Also spotted with the crew: a whole ‘lotta champers and some mackadocious tunes blazing from the iPod.
Seems strange to us that Rio didn’t attend his teammate Wayne Rooney’s wedding – reports had it that he RSVP’d yes, and was fitted for a suit and just didn’t show. By the way, Rio’s fiancée, Rebecca, is seven month’s pregnant, so she’s got an excuse for not flying anywhere.
‘Tis likely this Rio-riddle will remain a mystery. Oh well, at least he’s snubbing whilst topless. We’ll give him that.
