Sports! They're for everyone. Evo Morales, the president of Bolivia, has been signed to play for a professional soccer team in his home country, which he'll play on as his schedule permits.
Morales, 54, will play as a midfielder in twenty-minute increments for a team called Sport Boys that is based in the south-eastern province of Santa Cruz. While Morales is still doing his president thing, he will also make a minimum salary of around $214 a year as a pro soccer player.
He is reportedly very excited!
"He loves football and plays well," said Sport Boys' president Mario Cronenbold. "He'll wear the No 10 shirt."
"We'll send him a list of matches and he'll chose which ones to play in," he said.
Go Sport Boys. Go World Cup. Go presidential athleticism.
