Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon to launch singing career?
With his 40th birthday now come and gone and the joints beginning to creak, it would appear that Gianluigi Buffon is beginning to prepare for a career beyond football.
Indeed, the veteran Juventus goalkeeper shared a photo on Instagram of himself in a recording booth along with the intriguing caption: "Coming soon."
If there's any justice in the world, then we're about to be treated to Gigi's debut pop single, which would presumably be a haunting power ballad about keeping clean sheets, etc.
Alternatively, judging by the inclusion of a "clapperboard" emoji, there's also a chance Buffon may be lending his voice to an upcoming movie or animated short.
Only time will tell.
