齐达内当选法国“最受喜爱的名人”
Zidane remains best-loved French despite head-butt

According to a recent survey, French footballer Zinedine Zidane remains France's best-loved personality, despite his “head-butt” incident in the 2006 soccer World Cup final. 

Zidane came first in a ranking of France's Top 50 personalities, beating ex-tennis champion Yannick Noah who came in the second place.

Zidane was shown a red card after head butting Italy’s footballer Marco Materazzi in the chest. That ensured he missed the penalty shootout that decided the match in Italy's favour. 

The incident inspired an Italian designer. He has come up with sweatshirts with two stick figures depicting the incident.
depicting - a representation by picture or portraiture 描述, 描写

personalities - people. interesting people. 人物, 名人,

上周六的一项民意调查显示,尽管齐达丹·齐达内在2006年德国世界杯决赛中头撞意大利球员马可·马特拉奇,但他仍然成为法国最受喜爱的名人。

齐达内击败前网球冠军亚尼克·诺亚,登上“法国年度50大名人”排行榜之首。

齐达内在世界杯决赛的加时赛结束前10分钟头撞马特拉奇胸部,之后被红牌罚下。齐达内因此失去罚点球的机会,这直接导致意大利队占据比赛优势。

近日,一位意大利设计师还据此设计了一款运动衫,这款运动衫的后背上印着两个简笔小人,其中的一人正在“头击”另一人。
