What We Learned At: The 2012 Laureus World Sport Awards

The Laureaus World Sport Awards took place at the Central Hall in Westminster last night. As is usual with these events, a smattering of footballers turned up to watch Bobby Charlton pick up a Lifetime Achievement Award and surely what must be the most shocking event of the year so far: Leo Messi not winning an award he has been nominated for.

Indeed, it was Novak Djokovic who picked up the World Sportsman of the Year gong, which must be a relief to Leo’s cabinet maker, if no one else.

Anyway, enough of the boring stuff. How did our ‘baller boys represent?

Juan Mata is a secret agent. When he’s not harassing opposition goalkeepers with awesome goalscoring prowess, he’s jumping out of planes, being chased around Eastern Europe in a posh car and then arriving for a ‘posh do’ with not a hair out of place.

Andre Villa Boas, on the other hand, was dropped off to the event by his mum. She dressed him, too.

Alan Shearer may be a football legend, but is absolutely no good at standing still, on his own, having his picture taken. Awkward!

Arsene Wenger’s plans for global domination extend further than the football pitch. We see you Arsene!

Did we miss anything? No, thought not. Other than Cheryl Vieira’s fabu dress, we meant to say.

    Juan Mata looks sooooooo good!

    AVB is so hot, just say'n. And Mata is fine-tasitc….however I can't help but think of his nasally voice. It tends to neutralize my passions for his looks. But then he goes and wears that "un-wrap me" tux and the mata-meter is up.

    it's about time we get some Koscielny up in here!

    This better be the start of a trend, Kickette!

    Eee! Mata is like James Bond Mini, he's just too adorable, he comes across as such a nice friendly guy too.

    Lol, quality comment Kickette! :-)

    I know I'm in the minority, but AVB doesn't do anything for me whatsoever. He looks too much like a little boy as far as I'm concerned.

    I have a thing for Koscielny. And Mata manages to be handsome at cute at the same time. Lovely! But sorry, AVB just don't do it for me. I had my doubts at the beginning but now I know.

    Congrats again Barcaboys!!! (They won the best team of the year award. If you didn't know:))

  9. Miss Ilay says:

    Juan Mata can save me anyday!

  10. Mrs Arteta says:

    KOSCIELNY! He just looks so good in suits. He looked good in that suede jacket too.

  11. Carolina says:

    Dashing!!
