Reports began to circulate that Luiz, 28, was a virgin after he wrote on Instagram that he will wait until he is married before having sex with his current girlfriend.

In an interview with the BBC, which will be aired in full on Saturday, Luiz hit back at seemed rather offended at claims that he has never had sex before.

“People are saying things everywhere about whether I’m a virgin or not. I’m not a virgin. I’ve had more than one girlfriend in my life,” Luiz said. “Some people in the press don’t respect people in life. I can put my head on my pillow and sleep great because I respect everyone.”

Luiz is a devout Christian and whether or not he’s had sex makes no difference to us.

Obviously, in vast swathes of modern day society being a virgin at the age of 28 would be widely mocked by many but all we should really care about is how Luiz plays on the pitch and let him get on with his persona life. In his first season on the pitch at Paris Saint-Germain he has scored some memorable goals and has won the Ligue 1 title with Les Parisiens. Life in Paris is good for Luiz.

This focus on his personal life is, I suppose, is inevitable, but Luiz has set the record straight once and for all.
