Ruud Van Nistelrooy Blacked-Up In Marbella (PICTURES)

Ruud van Nistelrooy has never been synonymous with the bizarre until he blacked-up as Belshazzar, King of Babylon.

Van Nistelrooy attended the 'Parade of the Three Kings' in Marbella, Spain.

Along with the two other 'Kings', Van Nistelrooy met with locals and visited a hospital where he gave gifts to staff and handed out sweets to children.

Van Nistelrooy's blacked-up effort comes after that infamous Leeds United fan on New Year's Day.
