Ibiza Sporting Who's Who

Round about this time of year our trendy beach bars are full of millions of ruble's worth of sporting talent

Round about this time of year our trendy beach bars are full of millions of ruble's worth of sporting talent taking a well-earned break from their Saturday jobs.

Rome right winger Christian Panucci, Barcelona's Brazilian player, Anderson Luis de Souza, team mate Xavi Hernández, and long standing member of the coaching staff Carles Rexach have been spotted on the island with Alberto Rivera of Real Betis and Juan Manuel Gutiérrez of Real Madrid. We are happy to report that not a single handbag was raised in anger.

Meanwhile some of the superstars of the NBA have been bumping their heads on our diminutive doorways. Seven foot tall Pau Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies couldn't be missed in th equeue at one of our local supermarkets. The almost equally lofty Cuttino Mobley of the Sacramento Kings seemingly added another couple of feet to his stature by standing next to the world's tiniest DJ Erick Morillo at Pacha. (Don't celebs go anywhere else?)
