Sam Kerr unveils stunning new look in magazine cover shoot

Sam Kerr is comfortably one of the most recognisable athletes — heck, people — in Australia and increasingly around the world.

Her goalscoring exploits for club and country, along with those trademark backflipping celebrations the Chelsea star says she needs to stop doing, have made her a household name.

“I turned 30 a month ago,” Kerr said after keeping the celebrations under wraps across her hat-trick for the Matildas against Philippines in Perth back in October. “Those days are over.”

The West Australian surely doesn’t need the trademark flips anymore and Australian football fans will want her to protect those troublesome calf muscles that seriously impacted her World Cup campaign on home soil.

But the country’s all-time leading goalscorer has shown she can still unveil a completely new look, as seen in her cover story with magazine Esquire Australia.

In a wide-ranging interview, Kerr discusses the impact the Matildas made during that memorable World Cup semi-final run, cultural differences between her home in the UK and Australia and how she deals with fame.
