Ever wanted a diamond made out of your favourite footballer's hair? No? Well, too bad, because Pele has launched exactly that product.

That's right, for the low low price of $7,500 (approximately £4,500) you can own one of 1,283 statuettes that contain a diamond formed from the carbon in his hair. It's certainly an interesting idea, but we're going to hold off on buying until the Bendtner version comes out.
