President George Weah, 51, plays for Liberia

If this isn't the coolest thing you've heard all day, then we're not doing our jobs right.

George Weah is known simply as one of the finest African soccer players of all time. He spanned the globe playing for teams like AS Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain, and AC Milan. He was a three-time African Footballer of the Year as well as the 1995 Ballon d'Or winner. And he also made a record 60 appearances for his native Liberian National Team.

After becoming President of Liberia earlier this year at the age of 51, it appeared that his legendary career was over and finished. He rode into the sunset long ago, and heck, his son was now a professional playing for PSG. 

But little did we know that President Weah had more in the tank. And he proved that to everyone last night when he suited up with his fellow countrymen one last time in a friendly against Nigeria. 

He played 79 minutes in a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Super Eagles, however, he did get his number 14 retired by his nation after the match. And that's pretty cool.

Now, all we need is President Trump to suit up in the Stars and Stripes, and we could win the World Cup in 2022! (we kid, we kid, though if Putin kitted out for Russia, you never know ...)
