Photos of Russian soccer players Alexander Kokorin and Pavel Mamaev on their holiday vacation in Miami. have gotten some fans wondering if the two players are a couple.
We’re leaning toward “not,” if only because Russia isn’t really known for supporting gays—especially not gay soccer players. If Kokorin, 21, and Mamayev, 24, were an item, the last thing they’d do is take intimate photos and blast them on social media.
It’s nice to see such easy affection between these two men—even if we don’t know any straight friends who lie naked on top of each in the bathtub.
