Picture of Ibrahimovic and Pique causes a bit of a stir

No, this isn’t it

Ibrahimovic and Pique

The Italian website Corriere.it ran a short piece yesterday concerning a rather intriguing photograph of Ibrahimovic and Pique that appears to be causing something of a stir in cyberspace. The gist of it being that they look like they’re getting all a bit Brokeback Mountain about it, which has quite predictably sent the less tolerant football fans into a feeding frenzy of casual off-the-cuff homophobia.

Apparently taken by a keen Barca fan, some are questioning whether the picture is a fake, which has somehow been doctored by computer eggheads. Or whether they’re just good pals expressing their friendship without a very English stiff upper lip to weigh them down.

Or, you know what, perhaps they’re just two guys in love? Unlikely, but absolutely nothing wrong with that.

You can make your own mind up here.
