Phew! Carlos Valderrama didn’t cut his trademark blonde afro after all

Hairgate was a hoax.

Pictures surfaced over the weekend claiming that 51-year-old Colombian legend Carlos Valderrama had retired his famous curly wig.

Happily those pictures have since been proved to be misleading.

Valderrama was photographed at a training day at Atletico Junior in his home country, and because of windswept conditions the three-time World Cup star pulled his hair back in a ponytail.

Looking to rectify a wrong, pictures and video of Carlos Valderrama still with his trademark blonde afro can be seen below.
