Karim Benzema has reportedly spent $250,000 on a football—albeit one that's encrusted with 72,000 coloured diamonds.
The France and Real Madrid striker, according to TMZ Sports, asked Dave Bling, celebrity jeweller, to make up the life-size football for him, which is a whopping 1,250 carats.
Bling is quoted as saying that the ball will be "a definite conversation starter when company arrives."
That's debatable—this writer might look at it in open-mouthed, silent, slightly dazzled confusion.
What do you think?
