Football at the 2012 Summer Olympics
Borussia Dortmund's Polish striker Robert Lewandowski warms up during a training session at Wembley Stadium in London on May 24, 2013, on the eve of the UEFA Champions League final football match between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich at Wembley Stadium.
I became a whole new person ... When I showed up to football practice that summer, my coach almost didn't recognize me.

It's not that big a city, they had a lot of breweries and steel mills in the Sixties but that's all gone.

Abhishek and I will be travelling to London to attend the final. We look forward to the experience and like most football enthusiasts we are extremely excited to be a part of the madness at Wembley.More quotes »
