Turkish man’s failed balloon bicycle kick takes social media by storm

CCTV footage of a Turkish man’s failed attempt to bicycle kick a balloon has taken social media by storm.

Even Senegalese international Moussa Sow got in on the action. The former player for Istanbul’s Fenerbahçe offered to teach him to do it properly.

The man, who later nonchalantly puts his shoe back on and continues walking down the road, later appeared on Turkish social platform Ekşi Sözlük to revel in his new-found fame.

Telling other users to “Never let your inner child die”, he asked Beşiktaş, another Istanbul team, if the club would take him to one of its international away games.
