The Toe Poke Daily is here every day to bring you all the weirdest stories, quirkiest viral content and top trolling that the internet has to offer, all in one place.
Moscardelli ends the bottlecap challenge
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba are just two of the world-famous footballers to have attempted the bottlecap challenge — a viral sensation which involves people kicking the cap off a bottle with a roundhouse kick.
However, 39-year-old Pisa striker Davide Moscardelli has set a new bar.
Belgium-born Moscardelli is more famous for his incredible beard than anything he has managed on a football pitch in recent years, but now he may enter the annuls of history for officially ending the #bottlecapchallenge. Until NBA star James ‘The Beard’ Harden has a go of course.
Valderrama loses the curls
For those of you who have not come across Carlos Valderrama before, he was a legend of 1990s football. Always visible in the Colombia midfield because of his giant curly afro, Valderrama became a cult hero in the game and won fans around the world.
Now 57, Valderrama is clearly having something of a mid-life crisis as he was pictured recently WITHOUT HIS CURLS.

We’re not sure the footballing world will embrace this new look. Hopefully the hot weather ends his dalliance with straight hair, the curls return, and life can go back to normal again.
