A soccer superstar infamous for banging elderly prostitutes has come out in support of Obama.
Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney has declared his backing for the incumbent U.S. president. Whether this will swing the election for Obama is yet to be seen.
Watched all the presidential debates. If I had to vote would vote Obama.

It's not known how much interest Rooney has in U.S. politics. I wonder how his manager, Sir Alex Ferguson, will react to him staying up for the debates (okay, he could have recorded them, but I prefer the idea of him staying up late with a few cans of Stella for the political sparring).
Unsurprisingly, one of Rooney's twitter enemies was quick to mock the endorsement:
