After winning the 2018 World Cup with France, Olivier Giroud remained true to his word and shaved his head.

The Chelsea striker played 546 minutes of France’s successful campaign in Russia – and as a result of an apparent bet, he shaved his hair off in the aftermath.

Giroud helped deliver the second Fifa World Cup in France’s history, starting in the final which Les Bleus won 4-2 against Croatia.

The style move divided opinion, with some mourning the departure of his beautiful barnet…

… while others admired the versatility of Giroud’s look.

A selection of rumoured bets emerged after France won the World Cup, with centre-back Adil Rami saying he would fight two-time Olympic gold medal-winning French judoka Teddy Riner.

To be fair to Rami, he also stayed true to his word – appearing on television with Riner for a bit of fun.
