    Is this a first? I remember Pele playing some role in Brazilian politics but I don't think we've had an ex footballer turn president anywhere yet.

    I remember Chilavert being touted to run for Paraguay presidency but not sure if anything ever came of it.

    This is clearly not a football topic.
