For the uninitiated, French midfielder Zinedine Zidane is the greatest footballer in the world. Proven by his two goals in injury time to send England to defeat in the European Football Championships on Sunday.
Zidane does not crow. In victory, he shows only magnanimity. Rare acquaintance with reversals simply stirs him to more intense effort. This is a special, special footballer, the Real deal in every sense. Amid all the Birmingham disturbances and breast-beating over defeat to France, it needs acknowledging that England were slain by one of the greatest footballers ever.
Elegance has a name and his initials are Z.Z.
