Ashley Cole 'has a secret talent for playing the violin'
Soccer star Ashley Cole added another string to his bow while at school by learning to play the violin.
The England and Chelsea player's secret talent has been revealed by the Sun, which has published what it claims to be the 29-year-old's school reports.
Although many of the documents regularly note a rebellious streak, they also reveal that during his years at primary school he enjoyed playing the violin.
Cole is not the only celebrity whose talent with a bow and strings has been highlighted recently - earlier this month, it was reported that Hollywood star Carey Mulligan is to learn to play the violin.
She is having lessons ahead of her appearance in new film On Chesil Beach, where she will play the leader of a string quartet, according to the Daily Mail.
The newspaper explained that the producers of the movie want her violin playing to be as authentic as possible.Posted on 14 Jul 2010 16:11 to category : Band / Celebrity News
