Stefano Tempesti

Who is the greatest ever water polo goalkeeper? It is difficult to rank the contenders, but Stefano Tempesti is most certainly up there. Despite turning 40 on 9 June this year, the Prato-born player has set his sights on competing at the Olympics for the sixth time next year, which would take him level with former Spain international Manuel Estiarte. In order to achieve that, having seemingly said goodbye to Settebello after the Rio Olympics as captain, he accepted an offer from Ortigia Siracusa where he would be able to play regularly. Tempesti first featured in the top flight with Florentia under the wing of Gianni De Magistris and left with a Cup Winners' Cup to his name, before establishing himself at Pro Recco where he won 14 consecutive league titles and five Champions Leagues. At international level, he has won a host of medals during Alessandro Campagna's successful spell at the helm.
