The pop icon phoned Rio to wish him good luck for his new venture in the publishing business and courtesy of #5 you can listen here:
Following on from the successful launch issue - that reached 200,000 people in 20 territories - Rio Ferdinand's revolutionary digital magazine, #5, is back for a second issue that goes live on Thursday 6th August. Building on the mix of sport, personality, style, interactivity and cutting edge design that drew plaudits from press and readers alike, the issue can be viewed at rioferdinand.com.
The second issue features an interview with Tennis number 1 Roger Federer, as he reflects on his historic Wimbledon victory. The fastest man on Earth, Usain Bolt, talks about dumplings, ditches and dancing. And there is also an exclusive interview with French actor, Vincent Cassell, as he discusses his portrayal of famed French gangster, Jacques Mesrine, in two upcoming films; Mesrine: Killer instinct and Mesrine: Public Enemy No.1.
Rio said: "We had a great response to issue one and I can't believe we're here again so quickly. To have the greatest tennis player of all time AND the fastest man in history builds on our intentions from issue one. It's all about delivering top names and interesting features to our readers, and I can't wait to get cracking on issue three."
