World Cup winner Cannavaro faces jail after swimming in his own pool


World Cup winner and former World Player of the Year Fabio Cannavaro has been given a 10-month custodial sentence for breaking into his own home.

The retired footballer, who captained Italy to World Cup glory in 2006, had been ordered to stay out of his Naples address after prosecutors claimed that elements of the property breached planning regulations.

They said that Cannavaro hadn’t properly applied for planning permission for development of the house and surrounding grounds, which was seized by authorities.

Prosecutor Luigi Cannavale said that Cannavaro, along with his wife, Daniela Arenoso and brother Paolo, who is a professional footballer in Italy’s top division, broke a seal restricting entry to the property and went swimming in the pool.
