Anyone spotting Antony at the Toekomst training ground cannot fail to notice his broad smile. This left-footed player is clearly bristling with pride. "It is a dream come true to become Olympic champion wearing the Brazilian strip. The Olympics are hugely important. I am over the moon, and feel honoured. That will stay with me for the rest of my life."
Antony specifically points out his gratitude to Ajax. "Playing for Ajax meant I was able to win gold at the Olympics. I am so grateful to Ajax and have really come to love this great club."
