It was supposed to be one of the happiest days in the life of Mohamed Boya Tourai: the Malmö player was supposed to marry the one of his heart, but unfortunately, he had to return from his homeland Sierra Leone to Sweden, to join his new team.
Instead of canceling the event, Torai thought of a rather original idea: the wedding would take place, and his place in the ceremony would be taken by his brother, no less and no more.
"I married my lover, my wife and my best friend today," he tweeted a few days ago, along with festive photos.
"I can no longer start our common life together."
But today (Friday), a private admitted that the pictures in question were taken before the wedding itself.
"We photographed them before the event," he said, "so that it would look like I was there. But I wasn't. My brother represented me at the wedding."
The full story, as revealed to the Swedish media: "The wedding was on July 21st in Sierra Leone, but I wasn't there, because Malmo asked me to come to Sweden earlier. I will try to bring my wife to Sweden, so that she will be close to me. She will live here with me."
