10) Joseph Yobo - Table Tennis

The Everton vice-skipper likes nothing more than leathering a white ball around - the tiny ones used in ping-pong. The no-nonsense defender also has a passion for his own charity, the Joseph Yobo Foundation, which helps under-privileged children in Nigeria.

Also Robin Van Persie at the table :

9) Manuel Almunia - Second World War sites

Arsenal's Spanish keeper got hooked on WWII sites after watching the epic film, Saving Private Ryan. He says: "I read history books, watch documentaries and I like to visit museums when I can."

8) Paul Scharner - Parachuting, Bunjee Jumping, Water Skiing

The Wigan stopper is something of an adrenaline junkie, as if you can't tell by his eccentric hairstyles. The Austrian defender says of frankly crazy pastimes: "They help me become strong mentally." That's as maybe, but if it's all the same to you, we'll sit it out thanks Paul.

7) Mortiz Volz - Cake Making

The lederhosen wearing German full-back has admitted he's "a bit handy in the kitchen" and that he likes to "bake a cake to focus my mind before a game." Check out his personal website for more of his craziness... but prepare yourself for the terrible German music.

Also : The Hoff is my hero

6) Daniel Agger - Tattoo Artist

Like so many of his Premier League counterparts, Agger has an armful of tats. Unlike, we reckon, all of his Premier League counterparts, however, he's able to ink 'em on himself. Yes, that's right, the great Dane is a qualified tattoo artist.

5) Andrey Arshavin - Female Fashion Designer

The Russian playmaker has a penchant for ladies' fashion, and he's not afraid to admit it. Mind you, his motives are a touch questionable. The Arsenal star admits he took up fashion at university because "there were lots of girls among the students" - genius! He added: "I'm different. But I'm not trying to be eccentric. I always do what my inner voice tells me." Here's him studying at his St. Petersburg University.

4) Nobby Solano - Trumpet player

The Peru and Newcastle midfielder loves a bit of trumpeting and could regularly be heard tootling his horn around the Toon's training ground during his days in the north-east. He even once played down the phone to Sir Bobby Robson. Nobby owns three instruments, each worth more than £350, and says he's "pretty good". Alright Nobby, no need to blow your own trumpet...

3) Eric Cantona - Poet

The passionate Frenchman is well known for his poetry skills, unlike Gazza...Here's a little taster of his work..."An artist, in my eyes, is someone who can lighten up a dark room. I have never and will never find difference between the pass from Pele to Carlos Alberto in the final of the World Cup in 1970, and the poetry of the young Rimbaud." Ooh... Ah... Cantona!

2. Wayne Rooney - Drummer

Wazza initially tried to master the guitar, sadly to no avail. We imagine Coleen felt huge relief. Well, you would, wouldn't you. But then the dread must have descended once more when the Roonster got himself a drum kit instead.

1. Cristiano Ronaldo - Bingo

The Real Madrid winger may have every supercar to his name, but his real passion is... bingo. The Portuguese winker said: "It's exciting because you can be there waiting a long time for just the one number to win." Surely you're not on your own Ronnie, what about all your OAP friends?
