Everything has something that makes it beautiful. That’s kinda meaningless I know. In fact what I wanted to say is every sport has someone who makes it beautiful.
For football it was/is Ronaldino, who, the newspapers report, has resigned. But, God, he made the beautiful game,indeed, beautiful.
That’s why there’s this great article on him in the Guardian. Brilliant, like Ronaldino himself.
The ever-smiling Brazilian was not only prodigious talent, he was also football’s smile. He lit it- and us- up.
I warn you, dear reader, not to look for his videos on YouTube. You will spend hours. Or days.
Farewell Dinho. You did magic.
