Ronaldo Wore Diapers?

Brazilian football star Ronaldo apparently wore diapers during the 1999 Copa America tournament, that according to his former coach Vanderlei Luxemburgo.

In in article from and translated via the NY Daily News, Luxemburgo said in order for the striker to lose weight the team doctor “gave him medicine, Xenical, which was effective, but it also accelerated his bowel movements. So, in order to avoid any ‘ncidents,’ the player had to wear diapers, which embarrassed him.”

Embarrassed? No kidding!

Ronaldo still managed to score five goals and win the Golden Boot award for the event. And most importantly he kept dry.
