Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini's afro is history as he reveals new hairdo

Marouane Fellaini revealed his new haircut on Instagram
Marouane Fellaini's afro was one of the few constants in this ever-changing world.

Having recently missed out on the latest Belgium squad, Marouane Fellaini decided to perk himself up by staying at home and treating himself to a bold new makeover.

A week or so before his 31st birthday, Fellaini has streamlined his look by shaving off the dense mound of wiry hair that he's been proudly sporting (and sprouting) atop his head for the past decade or more.

Looking several pounds lighter, the Manchester United midfielder debuted his utilitarian 'do on Instagram along with the caption...

Referee suspended for using rock/paper/scissors to decide kickoff in Women's Super League

Rock, Paper, Scissors was used instead of the traditional coin toss
Rock/paper/scissors was used instead of the traditional coin toss.

The English Football Association has suspended a referee after he used an impromptu game of rock/paper/scissors to decide the kickoff of a recent Women's Super League match.

Realising he'd left his coin in the dressing room, official David McNamara asked the two captains of Manchester City and Reading -- Steph Houghton and Kirsty Pearce, respectively -- to determine which side kicked off.

This, as the FA will tell you, directly contravenes the laws of the game, which specify that a coin toss must...

Giroud's voice can be heard in the French-dubbed version of upcoming animation 'Spider-Man: New Generation'.

In a somewhat unlikely turn of events, World Cup winners Olivier Giroud and Presnel Kimpembe have made their acting debuts.

The two France internationals have provided voices for fairly major characters in a new Spider-Man animation that is set to air next month.

The duo have laid down their vocal talents alongside French actor Stephane Bak and singer Camelia Jordana.

Giroud plays the Green Goblin ("Bouffon Vert") in the French-dubbed version of "Spider-Man: New Generation," while Kimpembe fills...

Cristiano Ronaldo at the ATP Tennis Finals: Can he catch it? No he can't!

Cristinao Ronaldo is far more skilled with his feet than his hands, if footage of his attempted catch at the ATP Tour finals is anything to go by.
Cristiano Ronaldo is far more skilled with his feet than his hands if footage of his attempted catch is anything to go by.

With club football on the back-burner for a week or two, Cristiano Ronaldo ventured to London to watch a little tennis for the ATP Tour finals at the O2 Arena.

With the family in tow, Ronaldo had prime seats to watch Novak Djokovic take on John Isner -- the former ultimately trouncing the latter in straight sets to keep his quest for a record-equalling sixth Finals title on track.

Things didn't go quite as smoothly for the Juventus star, who at one point attempted to catch an errant ball only to...

Horseshoe factory is lucky charm for title-winning Jansson

Robin Jansson went from horseshoes to hero.

For Swedish defender Robin Jansson, horseshoes certainly proved to be a lucky charm.

The 26-year-old scored the goal that clinched AIK's first league title in nine years on Sunday, just seven months after leaving a job in a horseshoe factory to join the Stockholm club.

Jansson headed home the only goal in a 1-0 win over Kalmar to complete an unlikely journey that began as a semi-professional in the third tier.

"Eight, nine months ago I wouldn't have believed (I'd be standing here). It's a fantastic...

Barcelona's Sergio Busquets gives signed shirt to Betis coach Quique Setien, boss tipped for Camp Nou

Lionel Messi scored twice in his return from injury, but Real Betis netted four goals of their own to win 4-3, spoiling the Blaugrana star's return.
After Barcelona's home defeat to Real Betis, the FC crew examine the club's issues in the back, and Gab Marcotti questions their preparation.

After becoming the first coach to inflict a home defeat on Barcelona in 26 months, Real Betis manager Quique Setien's stock has never been higher.

With a reputation for prioritising attractive, attacking football, the word on the wire in Spain is that Setien may well end up plying his trade with Barca, and sooner rather than later.

Indeed, with Ernesto Valverde's future uncertain beyond the summer, there are some who believe the Catalans will make their move to bring the highly-regarded Betis boss...
