Amitabh Bachchan hooked onto Euro Cup

Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan confesses he is a sports lover and is currently enjoying the ongoing Euro Cup to the hilt. Apart from the passing of the ball and goals, he also has a keen eye for the players' unique body art.

"One thing common among Euro players... Apart from the fact they all use their feet in the game, they all have the weirdest tattoos too," Big B tweeted.

The UEFA football tournament, which began June 8 and ends July 1, features 16 European nations.

Big B also commented on the Ukraine-France game played Friday which was halted for 56 minutes.

"Ooff! Thunder and mad lightening! No... not the coming of the first monsoon rain in Mumbai... at the Ukraine vs France Euro game!," his tweet read.

Besides football, Amitabh is a close follower of cricket as well and had recited a poem at the opening ceremony of the Indian Premier League (IPL) this year. (IANS)
