    He’s got an olive skin hasn’t he? In that respect he reminds me of another person from Northern Ireland, George Best:


    I remember an Irish reporter interviewing Best – he said he looked more like an Italian than Irish! Didn’t understand it then, but now I guess its the Scottish influence (https://www.theguardian.com/uk/2012/aug/15/scotland-dna-study-project).
