Sara Carbonero

Spain's captain Iker Casillas and Sara Carbonero are quite a pair in their country, and the World Cup in South Africa put them on the world map.

But victory over the Netherlands in the final shut everyone up. And if that was not enough, Casillas kissed Sara, a sports journalist, when asked for his reaction on Spain's triumph.
