Having shipped the souls of the dead across the river Acheron for millenia ā€” or seven years ā€” Charon has today announced on Twitter that he will leave purgatory at the end of this season when his contract expires. 







Rumours are rife his journey will take him south ā€” presumably paying for his own crossing of La Seine in Qatari Riyal ā€” to join Real Madrid, Champions of Spain and potentially Europe. 

Perhaps only now we will see whether Charon is in fact a mythical creature, or a legendary being.
