Footy legend Danny Frawley’s 15-year old war over Elle Macpherson photo is warming hearts after his tragic death on Monday.
Frawley never quite got Elle out of his head. The legend’s cherished shared memory with the Aussie supermodel Macpherson is warmly remembered across the AFL community.
The 56-year-old footy has numerous rich memories from his 35 years in football, but when he made his photo with Supermodel a staple of his living room décor turned to a 15-year long battle.
Macpherson was installed as St Kilda’s No. 1 female member in the year 1990, at the same time she was one of Australia’s most recognizable celebrities.
Frawley was strangely affected by his meeting with the iconic Aussie model. And the photo which was taken in order to celebrate the club’s big membership announcement was one of Frawley’s secret guilty pleasures.
Frawley died in an accident a day after his 56th birthday!
