Picture-perfect Torres moment

HE may have led the Spanish rout of Ireland with two goals, but Fernando Torres is still a hit with Irish fans.

He was applauded off the pitch by the Irish on Thursday night, and Irish supporters queued up to get their picture taken with him in the Spanish team hotel yesterday.

Among them was father and son Ed and Andrew Golding from Tallaght, Dublin. Ed noticed Mr Torres was getting a bit fed up and decided to cheer him up.

"I said I'd make him laugh so I told him Liverpool would win the Champions League next year," said Ed. Mr Torres duly burst out laughing -- they haven't even qualified for the competition.
