We have to admit there is an eerie resemblance

One bright spot in this mess is that at least Benzema never killed anybody whereas Hernandez is doing life without parole for murder. You can google him if you're not aware of who he is and what he did. It's just too depressing for me to rehash here.

Poor Didier Deschamps looks about 100 years old - this latest crisis is definitely taking its toll

And then there is this angelic little girl :

Karim Benzema's France career threatened by sex tape case

Will France footballer Karim Benzema play on home turf in Euro 2016 or are his days on the national side over?

That is the question exercising France's football scribblers. And most think he is finished.

Once upon a time it would have been all about an injury, or a sudden loss of form, or some tragic personal circumstance.

But this is French Football 2015. The issue is rather more sordid.

French legend defends Real Madrid star

Zidane: "I've spoken to Benzema; I've got faith in him"

Zinedine Zidane talked to the media after Real Madrid Castilla's 3-2 win over Fuenlabrada, in which Mariano grabbed a hat-trick. The French legend did not dodge any questions, including the ones about Karim Benzema: "I've spoken to Karim and I believe him. I've got faith in him, but I told him that he should be careful. We all have to be careful".

As for the situation with Martin Ødegaard and the Norwegian's form, Zidane remarked: "Ødegaard had a really good game today. It's fair enough to question his performance in other matches, but today he played really well; he was really switched-on and his second-half display was superb".

Zizou's son Enzo, the Castilla captain, did not start on Sunday afternoon. The coach explained this as follows: "I left Enzo out because you have to make choices and this time I decided to leave Enzo and Alfonso [Herrero] on the bench. Enzo did well when he came on. The team comes first. I'm going to keep making changes. This isn't the first team and everyone has to play. Right now it's working well for us".

Lastly, Zidane discussed his use of Marcos Llorente, the youngster whom Rafa Benítez gave his competitive Real Madrid debut earlier this season against Levante: "Whenever possible, I'm going to play Marcos in midfield. However, when circumstances dictate and we don't have another option, he'll play at centre-back".

The French Football Federation's president, Noel Le Graet, has stressed he believes in the striker's innocence over the Mathieu Valbuena sex-tape scandal

The president of the French Football Federation (FFF) offered Karim Benzema words of encouragement after the Real Madrid striker spent the night in police custody in Versailles for blackmailing Mathieu Valbuena.

The 27-year-old gave himself up for questioning and was charged with complicity in an attempt to blackmail and participating in a criminal conspiracy as part of an investigation into a sex-tape plot involving his France team-mate.

Benzema was charged after being put before a judge on allegations he was part of a plan to blackmail Lyon midfielder Valbuena, but Noel Le Graet has stressed the FFF are fully behind Benzema as he remains innocent at this stage.

"I have a lot of affection for Karim. He is a great player and a great person. We will not let him down," the official told I-Tele.

Mathieu Valbuena's Spanish relatives have spoken out in Karim Benzema's defence. The French playmaker has Spanish ancestry on his father's side of the family.

His uncle Justo hails from Laguna de Duero, in Valladolid, and is adamant the Real Madrid striker has nothing to do with the horrible situation his nephew is going through.

"We're Mathieu's family and we stand by Benzema, who has nothing to do with this," Justo said, adding that Benzema didn't deserve to be dragged "into a fix".

"They played a dirty trick on him", the Lyon star's aunt said in reference to the whole episode surrounding the blackmailing of her nephew. "They're good friends, that's the truth," a tearful Justo concluded, describing Benzema as a "good bloke".
