Football fans were dumbstruck with amazement when handbag-toting, heel-wearing Argentinian model Fiorella Castillo appeared in a video showing off her freestyle skills around the same time of this summer’s World Cup.
There’s something intriguingly appealing about an unlikely character being able to boast infamy through his/ her skills with a football, and in this respect Castillo quickly became a fan favourite.
