Zenit Captain Dons Deadpool Costume in Russian Premier League Trophy Ceremony

As Zenit St Petersburg won its third straight Russian Premier League title, forward Artem Dzyuba finally got to live his dream. It wasn't the three-peat, but wearing a Deadpool costume to accept his trophy.

"He can do everything, the best thing about him is regeneration, so it's me," Dzyuba told. "I've had this costume for ages. It's our third title in a row so I can allow myself the chance to wear it. I have long wanted to wear it, but during the second championship I did not dare, and during the first there was no time for that.
