Gary Player to pose nude
Cape Town - South African golf legend Gary Player, affectionately known as the Black Knight, is in pretty good shape for a 77-year-old, and in the upcoming issue of ESPN the Magazine, readers will get the chance to see exactly how fit he is.
According to the Fox Sports website
, ESPN announced the names of the athletes who posed nude for the magazine’s fourth annual “Body Issue” on Thursday.
Among them: The septuagenarian Player, who will be the oldest person to ever appear in the magazine's special edition.
Player’s focus on his health is well-documented - he still does 1 000 sit-ups a day - and the idea of the magazine is to celebrate the human body in all forms, a point that doesn’t seem lost on the nine-time Major winner, who tweeted:After a lifetime dedicated to health & fitness I’m chuffed to be in @ESPNmag's Body Issue to hopefully inspire others to workout & live well
I was at first hesitant, but @ESPNmag's Body Issue celebrates the human body. No matter what your age, we should all look after ourselves!
I know I'm no Olympic athlete but have worked hard to look after myself. Hopefully @ESPNMag Body Issue will inspire others to do the same.
