“Enjoyed the Figo documentary on Netflix but my main takeaway is Figo has looked 40 years old his whole life,” a fan made a joke using a photo of him from Sporting Lisbon. The same fan added by saying that Figo in the picture looks exactly like he does now in his late 40s.
Another fan made a joke about how the long hair that Figo was sporting back then looked like a wig. “Looks like a Ben Stiller film where they put an awful wig on him for a flashback scene to when he’s younger. But it’s just 40-year-old Ben in a wig,” he said.
