Rumours surrounding Steven Gerrard and John Terry are refusing to go away even though England exited the World Cup more than a week ago.
Apparently the pair fell out while on international duty in South Africa after Terry became upset that Gerrard was not stripped of the captaincy, despite reportedly being involved in a similar sex scandal to the one which saw JT removed as skipper.

According to TalkSport radio, the latest development surrounding the pair is that their argument caused divisions in the Three Lions' camp, with a number of squad members choosing to side with a particular player.
By all accounts Gerrard's club team-mate Jamie Carragher and fellow scouser Wayne Rooney sided with the Liverpool captain, while Terry's Chelsea colleagues Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole made it clear they were supporting JT.
Details of any confrontations remain unknown but it appears increasingly clear that the Gerrard-Terry issue was to blame for England's less than trouble-free preparation.

Moving onto a slightly more positive note and Cristiano Ronaldo has become a father for the first time.
The Real Madrid star has revealed that an unnamed woman gave birth to a baby boy last month and that he will have sole custody of the child, with the mother having her identity kept confidential.
Ronaldo's mother and sister are set to bring the child to Portugal where he will be raised.

Finally, England fans have started a Facebook 'cause' calling for the entire England World Cup squad to donate a week's wages to the 'Help for Heroes' campaign.
Apparently the 23-man-squad earn a total of £2.5 million a week, with Robert Green the lowest earner at £30k a week and John Terry the highest at £180k.
