Football Funnies: Watch Arsenal midfield star Santi Cazorla play sepak takraw

If Arsenal midfield maestro Santi Cazorla were to ever consider playing an alternate sport, the traditional South-east Asian pastime of sepak takraw could be just the ticket.

The London-based English Premier League side posted a 44-second Facebook video on Tuesday of their ambidextrous Spanish star playing kick-ups with the rattan ball, and the results were mightily impressive.


It has been watched nearly a million times, garnering more than 40,000 likes.

With the Gunners due at the National Stadium for the Barclays Asian Trophy in July, perhaps Singapore could consider "borrowing" Cazorla for a gold medal tilt in the sport during June's SEA Games?
