The World of Beards caused controversy recently by suggesting that Sergio Batista was the world’s greatest bearded sportsman. We feel safe though in saying that Manchester City’s Sun Jihai is not in the running. In fact he doesn’t even have a beard. Not yet anyway. We sent our resident newshound, Regy Growthestein to sniff out why China’s David Beckham may be bringing the beard into disrepute.
The World of Beards is often asked “who is the greatest bearded sportsman of all time”? We now bring you the results of six and a half years extensive research. The greatest bearded sportsman of all time is……Sergio Batista.
