Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney goes swimming with a pig

After another long old slog of a season, Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney toddled off on a family holiday to the West Indies for a spot of well-deserved rest and relaxation.

Rooney and his brood happened across one of the stranger phenomenons the Bahamas have to offer after taking a dip in the azure waters just off the shore of the appropriately named "Pig Island".

The United man posted the following holiday snap on Instagram along with the caption: "Didn't expect to see pigs in the sea in...

MC El-Eulma the unlucky losers in incredible Algerian league finale

You may remember we highlighted the Algerian Championnat Premier Division and just how bafflingly tight the league was with just four games left to play.

Indeed, the 16-team table was so condensed that with 12 points still up for grabs, bottom side NA Hussein Dey still had a mathematical chance of winning the league and top side ES Setif were still in theoretical danger of being relegated!

Having wrapped up their fourth Russian Premier League title last weekend with two games to spare, Zenit St. Petersburg decided to capture the moment with a celebratory team photo.

However, we're not talking your run of the mill "couple of benches lined up on the pitch" shot here, oh no.

In fact, Zenit instead decided to dress up in an array of 19th century Russian military uniforms, with coach Andre Villas-Boas plonked front and centre with little Andrey Arshavin peering over his shoulder.

Social media reaction to Sepp Blatter's re-election as FIFA president

The latest FIFA congress is in the books and -- surprise! -- Sepp Blatter has been re-elected as the supreme overlord of world football, or FIFA president if you will.

Upon the confirmation of a fifth term for Blatter, reaction from the social media world started flooding in. Here are a few of note.

Retired footballer Luis Figo, who initially ran for FIFA president only to withdraw weeks before the election, posted some poignant thoughts.
