If you have ever wondered why footballers shave their bodies, just google images of Ryan Giggs celebrating goals in the late 1990s.  It is for aesthetic reasons mainly, although shaving is recommended for runners, swimmers or cyclists since it improves performance. Cristiano Ronaldo has the habit of shaving his body before any game. The Real Madrid star is thought to have 10 % body fat, something that is hard to achieve by most people. He is an elite athlete, mind you, but it takes hard work and dedication to have a low body fat. His habit of shaving his body is both aesthetic and a bit selfish- abs look better without hair.
