Toe Poke Daily: Messi, Ronaldo and football's biggest stars put through FaceApp
The Toe Poke Daily is here every day to bring you all the weirdest stories, quirkiest viral content and top trolling that the internet has to offer, all in one place.
FaceApp is all the rage on social media right now. Just add a picture of yourself and find out what you will look like when you are really old.
So we thought we'd take some of the biggest names in football, and put them through the app. It's fair to say some came out better than others.
If you're Jose Mourinho or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, you might want to look away now!
Ozil goes blonde
With the start of the new season already just a matter of weeks away, Mesut Ozil has plumped for a fresh new look.
Indeed, the German forward has been seen sporting an eye-catching silvery blonde coif out in Los Angeles, where Arsenal are currently preparing to take part in the 2019 International Champions Cup.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was among many suggesting that Ozil may have dyed his hair in tribute to Megan Rapinoe, though a lot of other lookalikes being suggested weren't quite as complimentary.

Ozil later explained that he has had to dye his hair as the result of a crossbar challenge wager he lost against Alexandre Lacazette, and that both Shkodran Mustafi and Sead Kolasinac have also followed suit.

We can hardly wait to see the result yet to come.
Chelsea go all mod with change kit
Chelsea have revealed their away kit for the 2019-20 season, and they have called on the inspiration of the "mod culture" by going for a polo shirt-style number.
Inspired by Mod culture, which thrived in 1960s south-west London, our 2019/20 Nike away kit is here! 🔥— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) July 17, 2019
It's a sharp look. It's a Chelsea thing.
Get yours: https://t.co/Wls7Ga23Xc pic.twitter.com/GBmhhanXc8
"It's a sharp look. It's a Chelsea thing," say the club. And the Nike number will probably sell like hot cakes.
Polish club's Bee-saving kit
Elana Torun, a club in the Polish third division, have launched a kit called "Bee," with the aim of raising awareness for the plight of bees.
Przedstawiamy Wam wyjątkową koszulkę meczową na sezon 2019/2020.— Elana Toruń (@ElanaTorun) July 15, 2019
Nazwaliśmy ją "Pszczółka", ponieważ chcemy zwrócić uwagę na problem wymierających pszczół. Ule pustoszeją, a to poważnie zagraża rolnictwu (pszczoły zapylaniem odpowiadają za produkcję 3/4 pokarmu dla człowieka). pic.twitter.com/g8SAh8pbXG
The club states that bees are "responsible for the production of 3/4 of human food" but their hives are being devastated in the country and their long-term future is under threat.
Elana Torun fears "tragic consequences for agriculture, the economy, the environment and for people living in the world" if action is not taken.
