Words fail me. ‘Genius’ will have to do.

The skinny: This happened in Iceland at the weekend, during a match between Stjarnan and Fylkir – the former were responsible for the celebration, after Johann Laxdal scored.

I seriously think you should get bonus points in football for capers like this. Much as I always wanted Alan Shearer to break his leg when he ran around with one arm up in the air after scoring yet another penalty.

So, in summing up: yes, this is the greatest goal celebration in the history of football. The big-catch ‘photo’ at the end seals the deal.
