Soccer Fan Changes Name To Club


Giraldo Zuluaga, from Medellin in Colombia, has changed his name to Deportivo Independiente Medellin, his favourite football team.

Zuluaga fought for 7 years in the courts to have the right to change his name to DIM.

The now legally named Mr Medellin says he is the happiest man alive.

He told reporters:

"I've made sacrifices to get to this point.

Everyone said I was mad, but finally I won.

Now you can call me Deportivo, Independiente, Medellin or just DIM."


DIM probably means something different in Columbia.
