Think of professional footballers' leisure activities and, well… it's best not to really, unless you're a tabloid hack seeking a bit of scandal. And when the footballer in question is famed multi-red card winning Netherlands international ankle-biter Edgar Davids (charmingly nicknamed 'The Pitbull') then you can only imagine the worst really.

Davids, currently plying his trade at Spurs, apparently 'loved the show'. But it may surprise you to learn that the Pitbull is more accustomed to the rarefied atmosphere of the AF than you might imagine, having spent quite a lot of time at the gallery last October.
