“I’ve always liked horses – I’ve ridden them since I was a very young child, so it’s in my blood,” said Gabriel Batistuta. After football, the former Argentinian’s hobby is polo! He said: “Playing polo gets my adrenaline going; it’s a similar sensation to the one I used to get when I walked onto a football pitch in Serie A or for Argentina.
