RIP Sócrates, Brazil’s Hero, My Hero Dr.

I woke up to such sad news today, I couldn’t even bring myself to do the mandatory RIP on Facebook. I have had a “secret” crush on this man as far back as I can remember, a little girl watching football in Sudan on a small TV surrounded by my dad and my uncles. The more I learned, read, heard, saw of him the more I grew to love him.

My Dr Hero and Secret Crush

The world has lost another beacon of light. A Genius. A truly remarkable man. Besides football, a doctor, a writer, a musician, a political activist and even a theater director. He is and always will be my idol Geek, and I shall continue to look up-to to him. May you rest in perfect and absolute peace. Ameen.

Here is a short but nice article published in the Guardian on the man himself and a beautiful tribute video

Post up any tributes you found and/or your own tributes in form of song, words or photos.
