Robin van Persie’s 93-year-old grandfather copies that header v Spain #persieing [picture]
The picture above is starting to go viral on the world wide web.
Robin van Persie has already stated that the diving header against Spain was the best goal he has scored in a long and distinguished career.
This sparked a craze of #persieing in Holland, where pictures became common place of the flat out dive that followed connection with the ball from Daley Blind’s cross.
RVP’s 93-year-old grandfather Wim Ras was the latest to join the craze in Holland.
Ras told Omroep Brabant that van Persie’s goal against Spain was a “wonderful achievement” and described the follow through as a “happy landing.”
The grandfather of the Manchester United striker produced the #persieing pose and explained that he could still get down to do the new Dutch craze because he used to be a gymnast: “But its getting more difficult because its not a position you get into every day.”
