People have often laughed when I tell them that my two favourite interests are ballet and football. So I was quite pleased to see the English National Ballet do a piece based on football :)

Apparently, Rio Ferdinand was offered a scholarship into a ballet school when he was younger, but took the footballing route instead. :)

Didn't they show Ferdinand doing something like that on a 'When They Weren't Famous' show a little while ago?
