Bolivian president Evo Morales has been signed up to first-division club Sport Boys, despite being 54 years old and—in theory—quite busy running the country.
According to the BBC, football-loving Morales will turn out for around 20 minutes a match whenever he's available and pocket the minimum wage of £127:
"He loves football and plays well," said Sport Boys' president Mario Cronenbold. "He'll wear the No 10 shirt."
"We'll send him a list of matches and he'll chose which ones to play in," he said.
[...] The president is said to be fit and very excited with the prospect of playing.
Mr Morales has played in several well-publicised matches with journalists, union leaders and other presidents.
Morales has been president of the South American nation since 2006.
There's probably a difference between turning out in charity matches and serious football, but if you were the president of your country and fancied a game, don't pretend you wouldn't consider trying it.
