Sports and fashion go together hand in hand, with many people believing that the attention to detail required in both professions is what makes them so similar.
With that in mind it doesn’t seem all too surprising that many of the biggest names in sports have a fashionable side to them, and these are the best of the bunch.
Now this list was compiled by Sports Illustrated, and by comparison we shan’t pretend to possess as great of a knowledge in this department.

Monica Seles: Stabbed
At the 1993 French Open, Monica Seles was stabbed by a deranged fan of her rival Steffi Graf. During her quarterfinal match, a fan hopped onto the quart and stabbed her between the shoulder blades.

If you’re now looking back at this list wondering where it all went wrong in your life by comparison, then don’t worry – it’s entirely natural. At the end of the day these 11 individuals are in a world of their own, with their fashion presence only being matched by their phenomenal athletic ability.
Still, they probably can’t moan on the internet like we can right? It’s the little things.
