News broke yesterday from Buenos Aires that former Manchester United and Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez's father had been kidnapped and held for ransom after his car was intercepted by a gang of unknown thugs.
But today it has emerged that Segundo Tevez has been freed and is in "good shape" after lawyer Gustavo Galasso made a statement to the Argentine media.
According to Argentine TV station C5N, Carlos has to stump up a $400,000 fee to see his dad released, although these reports are unconfirmed. Still, at least it is a swift end to what could have been a very bad situation for the Juve frontman.
