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 red card-winning Netherlands international Edgar Davids (charmingly nicknamed The Pitbull), you can only imagine the worst. But guess who was spotted wandering serenely around the exhibits at the latest Architecture Foundation opening, 'Best in Show'? That's right, none other than the Dutch midfield hardman himself. Davids, currently plying his trade at Spurs, apparently 'loved the show'. But the Pitbull is already familiar to the rarefied atmosphere of the AF, having spent time there last year during the Clerkenwell Cup table-football tournament.

One of the more recognisable plastic figures on the bespoke table was none other than Davids the dreadlocked dynamo himself.
