    His name is often mangled by English-speaking journalists, who either mispronounce his name as 'Humus' or Hamas (when they aren't pronouncing in generic Anglo-Saxon).
    He pulled a David Beckham by launching his own personalized brand of underwear, appearing in suggestive ads for his J10 line of briefs on television and the internet.
    His professional start was controversial - he was recruited for Envigado by an assistant to Pablo Escobar, Gustavo Lopez, who also happened to be a shareholder in the team.
    A prank of him and his teammates jumping out from behind a curtain to scare the hell out of teammate Pablo Armero in his hotel room went viral on Youtube.
    He emotionally wept on the field after losing to Brazil in the World Cup Quarter-Final, famously having to be consoled by both his teammates and by the opposition.

    He skyrocketed to fame after single handedly firing Colombia to the World Cup quarter-finals with five goals.
    He kisses the tattoo of his daughter's name on his right arm as a good luck charm.
    Despite Colombia's elimination in the quarter-finals, his goal scoring earned him the 2014 Golden Boot Award.
    You wanna talk 'bend it like Beckham' - his five goals topped the goalscoring charts, breaking records previously set not only by Beckham, but also Messi, Muller, and Neymar.
