TV Station admits to Photoshopping Ronaldo’s Abs
Barcelona’s official Tv station, Catalan Tv, also known as Tv3, has finally come clean, after being accused of Photoshopping the abs of Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.
About a week ago, Real Madrid’s official Tv station called out Tv3 for expanding and toning down the abdominal muscles of the talented footballer, who is well known for having great abs.
Tv3 has now finally confessed to doctoring the images, though they said they meant no malice by it.
Jordi Ramos, a journalist with Esport Club explained that the image had to be photoshopped because of brand names on it. Tv3 has long since put up the real picture and we hope this finally ends it or not 😉

Demba speaks on his broken leg and future
Shenghai Shenhua striker Demba Ba has revealed that he won’t be retiring, after suffering a very severe injury in a Shenghai derby in a Chinese League game.
There had been fears that Ba may be forced to retire after he sustained the injury when he tangled with Sun Xiang and his leg got broken.
Now Ba has allayed the fears of fans and friends who have supported him in this difficult time.
“This is a really bad injury but I know I can overcome it. I won’t call time on my career, that’s for sure,” Ba told RMC.
“They haven’t done the full operation because I told them to wait.
“I wanted to go to Europe to have it done but when I learned that was not possible I arranged with the doctor here to sort me out a French surgeon who should arrive shortly. He will operate on me.
“There are other players who have returned from similar injuries, like Hatem Ben Arfa. Something similar happened to me earlier in my career and the treatment options are much better now. I think I’ll make a speedier return this time.”
“The season here ends in November and the new one starts in March. I’ll do my best to return in time for the season after that.”
We hope you do Ba, get well soon!
