Jonjo Shelvey trolls the Cardiff fans by doing the ‘Swim Away’ gesture at full time

Jonjo Shelvey had a poor performance in Swansea’a historic 1-0 derby loss to Cardiff City.

The former Liverpool midfielder does know his Swansea-Cardiff history though, as at full time Shelvey trolled the home support by performing the ‘Swim Away’ gesture.

It derives from an event 25 years ago:

In September 1988 a group of around ten Cardiff fans were chased into Swansea Bay by a larger group of Swansea fans. Since then, Swansea fans frequently suggest to their neighbours that they “swim away”, in reference to the event.

On Twitter Swansea fans seem divided by Shelvey’s trolling, many wishing he turned up for the game instead.
