Dressed as a space alien

While the world of sumo is being rocked by takes of scandal and corruption, I’m pleased to see that the Mongolian former champion, the tremendous Asashoryu – himself no stranger to the attentions of the tabloid press – has taken time out to throw his not-inconsiderable weight behind Argentina in the World Cup.  This is perhaps not so surprising as Asashoryu has previously been dubbed the ‘Maradona of Sumo’ (although these days Maradona arguably looks more like the Asashoryu of football).  But I’m sure the team will welcome the endorsement ahead of this afternoon’s clash with Germany.
