Dani Alves has been a busy man this summer. Not only has the Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil right-back undergone surgery on his World Cup-ending knee injury, taken classes at Harvard Business School and presented the MTV Awards in his home country, he has also posed for the front cover of Vogue Russia and launched his musical career.
Alves, 35, and PSG teammate Julian Draxler of Germany starred alongside Russia international Fedor Smolov and model Natalia Vodianova for the cover of the World Cup edition of Vogue in the host nation.

The self-proclaimed "Good Crazy" has been ruled out of the competition with a knee injury suffered in the Coupe de France final but has still kept himself busy.
As well as his Vogue Russia exploits, Alves has also made his musical debut alongside compatriot Thiago Matheus and former Barcelona goalkeeper and teammate-turned-musician Jose Manuel Pinto -- otherwise known as Wahin -- for the track "Suave."
World Cup or no World Cup, there is rarely a dull moment in the life of Dani Alves.
