EDEN HAZARD has become the latest football superstar to ditch his hairs and graces in a bid to lift spirits amid the coronavirus crisis.
The Real Madrid midfielder revealed a head shaved brutally closely, much like Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial, now that lockdowned players seem to be getting their scissor-kicks out of hairstyles rather than toilet-roll juggling.

Barber Ahmed Alsanawi posted a photo of Hazard with a dazzling smile – perhaps trying to distract attention from his grim trim.
But the ex-Chelsea main man had no time to mullet over as Bernabeu stars are on a strict fitness regime in their homes, with Spain severely hit by Covid-19.
LaLiga was snip and tuck before football's enforced break, Real just two points behind champions Barcelona.

But nothing can match tactics gleamed from team training or the intensity gained in competitive games.

And now Belgium ace Hazard, 29. cannot even swap one type of curlers for another after his austree crop.
For the moment he looks more beast of Eden than heavenly playmaker as he was at Stamford Bridge – until a £130milion move to the Bernabeu last summer that has left him struggling to match his Premier League swagger.

“It is an adaptation season. I will be judged in the second.
“It is up to me to be in good shape next year. The group is good.
“For me it has been a great experience. I still have four years on my contract.”
