Madrid signed up actor Harrison Ford as their latest recruit on Wednesday.
The 61-year-old American was presented with a first team shirt at a ceremony

Ford's latest "Hollywood Homicide" will be one of a series of films to be

promote my new film."
Atletico play their first match of the season away to Sevilla on
