Something special: George Weah

George Weah, the only African footballer to have won both the Ballon d’Or and FIFA’s World Player of the Year award, will net another prize today when he is inaugurated, after winning an election in December. His accession will also be a milestone for democracy in West Africa: it will be the first peaceful electoral transfer of power in Liberia since 1944.
