With a remarkable €222 million ($262,821,000) transfer fee, Neymar Jr.'s move to PSG - Paris Saint-Germain - has made history

Fun fact: This is the biggest percentage increase on the most expensive footballer record since 1932 when Bernabe Ferrerya joined River Plate for £23,000 surpassing the £10,890 paid by Arsenal for David Jack in 1928.

On this day in 1892 the oldest ever female twins were born. Kin Narita and Gin Kanie from Japan (whose names mean Gold and Silver) had 16 children and at the last count 11 grandchildren between them. They lived in Nagoya, Japan, the town of their birth.

The cheerful pair became famous after their 100th birthday, appearing on talk shows with celebrities - photos of Kin and Gin laughing were used to endorse stamps, telephone cards and household cleaning products. When they made their first overseas trip at the age of 102 to Taiwan, they were greeted by more than 1,000 pairs of twins.

Kin died of heart failure on 23 January 2000 at the age of 107 years 175 days. Gin died a year later at the age of 108.

"We never thought we would live this long," Kin was quoted as saying on the twins' 100th birthday. "We could survive because we were twins. We need each other more than anyone else in the world." .
