Luis Figo of Portugal.
Did you know the 2000 European Footballer of the Year, the 2001 FIFA World Player is a polyglot?
Yup, Luis Filipe Madeira Caeiro Figo can speak Portuguese, English, Spanish and Swedish. Here's something more you must know about this 75 kg hunk: a Portuguese championship debut at 17, into the international league at 19 and calls himself 'half complete without a ball'. He also loves fried chicken and duck with rice and rock music. And you are most likely to see him chilling on the beaches of Europe with his wife Helene and child Daniela.
