PICTURE: Robin van Persie’s grandad becomes a flying Dutchman

by Sam Peoples

Robin van Persie’s header in Holland’s 5-1 thrashing of Spain last week was a goal to remember.

If only for how unique it was, Van Persie’s header will be remembered as one of this World Cup’s most memorable goals.
 

 
Within 24 hours, people around the world were doing their best Van Persie impressions in a new trend called #persieing.

Now, Van Persie’s grandad Wim Ras, 93, has recreated the moment and got in on the act with his own celebration.

If you can do that by the time you’re 93, then you have done very well for yourself.
