A Nottingham Forest player is rocking the Abel Xavier look to raise money for cystic fibrosis

Danny Fox is sporting a spectacularly dyed beard.

AS EVERYBODY BECOMES a hipster, beards are getting more and more coverage in the media. When Roy Keane and Gordon D’Arcy shaved their magnificent facial hair, a large portion of sports fans went into mourning.

This story should cheer all the beard enthusiasts up though. Nottingham Forest defender Danny Fox is trying to raise money for a cystic fibrosis charity so he has dyed his beard.

Fair play to him for being willing to play a televised game with this.

“My friend, Paul Williams, passed away from cystic fibrosis and this is the colour that represents their charity,” Fox said to the Nottingham Forest website.

“I became an ambassador about 18 months ago and they wanted me to raise awareness by dying my beard. I’ve set up a JustGiving page and I’m going to do a skydive and other events to hopefully raise about £25,000.”

We have an idea of who might have given Fox a bit of inspiration too.
