At the end of an year, which saw his courageous battle with leukaemia and official retirement from football,  Bulgarian midfielder Stiliyan Petrov proved his high class in a very different field.

The father of two boys sported as usual his wide and charming smile, which has turned into his brand and stayed strong despite the hardships.

Stiliyan Petrov, a long-time player for Celtic and Aston Villa, which he also captained, was diagnosed with acute leukaemia in March 2012.

In May 2013, Stan officially announced his retirement from football.
