Michael Turnbull finally shares proof he wasn't lying about his professional soccer career.

The Bachelorette runner-up Michael Turnbull has finally put to rest those rumours that he never actually played professional football for Australia.

In case you missed it, Turnbull sold himself as a ‘professional soccer player’ during his quest to find love with Sam Frost, but many viewers believed he had wildly inflated the claims.
