Paris St-Germain and Brazil centre-back David Luiz has angrily debunked speculations that he is still a virgin.
The 28-year-old posted a photo of himself being baptized in a swimming pull on his Instagram page on Wednesday with the caption: “I have chosen to wait.”
Those words immediate triggered a rash of reports that he was still a virgin and had opted to abstain from sex with his girlfriend, Sara Madeira.
“My religion, my baptism, I’m very happy,” Luiz responded, adding: “People are saying things everywhere about whether I’m a virgin or not. I am not a virgin.
“Some people in the press don’t respect people in life. I can put my head on my pillow and sleep great because I respect everyone.”

Assim que, se alguém está em Cristo, nova criatura é: as coisas velhas já passaram; eis que tudo se fez novo. (2Coríntios 5:17 ARC). Como é maravilhoso viver contigo Senhor, obrigado por me amar tanto e cuidar de mim! A minha vida é tua,e eu sou teu servo! Que estejas sempre no centro de todas as minhas decisões! Eu te amo meu Deus! Amém
