The Softest Athletes in Sports History

12. Arjen Robben

Sport: Soccer

When Arjen Robben is healthy, which isn't that often lately, he has maybe the best left foot in Europe. His ability to run the flanks and cut inside for a shot or a pass can drive defenders absolutely bonkers. You know what else drives defenders bonkers? Arjen Robben flopping around on the pitch like a fish out of water after every "tackle", something the winger is equally as good at. The Dutchman has been cast as soft, and a flopper throughout his career, not that he can deny it. Just add Robben to the list of talented players that give footballers the perpetual "soft" label, that they just can't seem to shake. It's like flopping is in their DNA or something, it's become a true skill at this point.
