Kaka: I Belong to Jesus

"The World Cup, soccer’s biggest event, is watched by an estimated 600-million people worldwide!
Brazilian midfielder, known by fans as Kaká, is certainly one of soccer's all-time superstars: World Player of the Year in 2007 and named by Time Magazine 2008 as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world!

When the Olympic flame arrived in Rio de Janeiro in May, Kaká was invited by Brazil’s President to “endorse” the Olympic Games in lighting of the torch.

Almost as well-known as his soccer prowess are Kaká's “I belong to Jesus” t-shirts—revealed as he rips off his jersey when he scores a goal. In an interview with Cru he says: “My parents always taught me the Bible and its values."
