Six minutes to play, 7-1 up away from home and Arjen Robben is still diving: arms splayed, back arched, knees tucked and face squalled.
You’ve got to salute the guy’s commitment to his gimmick.
In homage to the frail Dutch swan, here’s a big ol’ gallery of him in full flight down through the years – a truly, truly majestic wonder of the natural world…
End on a classic.
We’ve often wondered what noise Robben makes when he screams in flight.
We like to imagine it’s the kind of noise emitted when you accidentally stand on a cat’s tail.
