So Italian giants Lazio have snapped up young Cameroonian whippersnapper Joseph Minala. Here he is posing in full kit.

Thing is, a few questions have been raised about his age. Some corners of the media have suggested that he may be older than he claims. Lazio have reacted furiously and promised to release his birth certificate, which states his "real" age of, er, 17.


Senegalese media are reporting that he is, in fact, 41. Lazio have responded by threatening legal action against anyone who questions Minala's age. We hasten to judge.
