Cavani becomes a father

Napoli striker Edinson Cavani became a father earlier today when his wife gave birth to a baby boy.

The Uruguay international has been dedicating his recent goals to his son.

Already nicknamed the 'mini-Matador' Cavani has called the baby Bautista.

If Cavani scores when Napoli face Lazio on April 3, it's thought he will emulate Bebeto and do a 'cradle rocking' celebration.

Cavani has found the net on 22 occasions in Serie A, equaling a club record held by Antonio Vojak who reached the same total in the 1932-33 season.
