For their talents on the football field they are worshipped by millions. But some footballers are gifted off-field as well as on it.
Below we take a look at some players who are talented at activities off the field of play - and some of them are stranger than you may originally think.
Clint Dempsey can rap
Many footballers' attempts at music are comical. However, the ex-Spurs player is pretty decent at rhyming verses. He has released a few tracks in the US and uses the name "Deuce" when rapping.
Daniel Agger is a tattooist
If someone asked you to guess what the Liverpool star's hidden talent is, after one look at the designs that adorn his arms and neck, you would have a pretty good idea it is something to do with tattoos.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a black belt in Taekwondo
It is an undisputed fact that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is absolutely nuts. And the fact that the 6'4 ft striker knows martial arts may scare some people a little. We would not like to get on the wrong side of him.
Theo Walcott is an author
