Footballer Ruud van Nistelrooy ‘blacks up’ for Spanish hospital visit (Photos are hilarious)

Former Manchester United and Real Madrid striker Ruud van Nistelrooy has caused a bit of a stir after ‘blacking up’ on a visit to a hospital in Spain.

The Dutch hit-man, who retired from the game in May last year, dressed up as ‘Belshazzar, King of Babylon’, to take part in the ‘Parade of the Three Kings’ in Marbella where, alongside two other ‘Kings’, he handed out presents and sweets to staff and patients.

Along with the black face paint Van Nistelrooy wore a jewelled head dress and leopard print robe for the annual event which celebrates the Three Wise Men visiting the baby Jesus.

So pleased was Van Nistelrooy with his visit, that the Dutchman took to Twitter posting several photos of his costume saying: ‘In hospital with presents for the young and old.’

However, Van’s good deed has been criticised by some who have accused the former striker of being racist.

He's Dutch - they're known for being not just assholes, but racist as well.

That's just Dutch Christmas tradition - Saint Nick and his 8-10 black slaves. Seriously - it's bizarre.

David Sedaris wrote a hilarious piece on it many years ago.
