Puskas Award winner Wendell Lira retiring to become professional gamer

Wendell Lira took home the Puskas Award just six months ago.

Wendell Lira is hanging up his football boots for FIFA 17.

The 2015 Puskas Award winner announced on Thursday that he has called quits on the beautiful game to instead pursue a career in video gaming, and he couldn't be happier.

The former Goianesia man made world headlines after taking home the prize for 2015's best goal with a twisting bicycle kick against Atletico Goianiense. Now, six months after winning the award, he is back in the spotlight for another eye-opening turn.

But the move doesn't...

Jesse Lingard teaches Fosu-Mensah and Borthwick-Jackson to dab

As you may have noticed, Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard has been employing the "dab" as his goal celebration of choice for some time now.

So much so, in fact, that Lingard has even attempted to create a kind of well-choreographed superhero alter-ego for himself that incorporates his dance move of preference, once taking to the pitch with "Dabberman" embroidered on his boots.

However, we feel you can now probably go ahead and declare the fad officially over, largely due to this cringe-inducing...

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka sings initiation song in front of teammates

After joining Arsenal earlier this summer, Granit Xhaka was finally made to undergo a traditional initiation ceremony this week.

As is customary, the Swiss midfielder was made to stand up on a chair in front of his teammates and serenade them all with a little song of his choosing.

Unfortunately for all involved, Xhaka tuneless number was captured by reserve goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney wins Old Trafford go-kart race

Wayne Rooney proved that he's still the quickest player at Old Trafford when he finished first in a straight race between himself, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

However, it should perhaps be noted that the race was the "Red Devil rally" which involved zooming around the stadium concourse in mini go-karts, rather than any actual physical exertion.

A few slightly contentious cornering manoeuvres from Rooney there but still, a win is a win!

Sergio Aguero and Samir Nasri play football on the Great Wall of China

Manchester City made up for missing out on their game at Beijing's Bird's Nest Stadium with a kickabout on the Great Wall of China.

Sergio Aguero, Samir Nasri, Kelechi Iheanacho and youngster James Horsfield visited the ancient monument to launch City's new away kit and while they were there, the City quartet staged a small game of football tennis on the 2,000-year-old Great Wall.

City had been due to play Manchester United in an International Champions Cup match on Monday as part of their preseason...

Championship side Reading's new kit for 2016-17 is out of this world

Championship side Reading have taken the notion of launching their new kits rather literally by sending them up into orbit.

To promote the grand unveiling, the Royals have tethered their new home and away shirts to a balloon and let it drift 40 kilometres into the atmosphere while using a camera to beam footage of the ascent back down to Earth.

The entire climb, all 39,084 metres of it, can be seen on this rolling live feed.

Once they've reached their maximum height, the kits will be dropped (safely,...
