Puyol a legend in his own back garden

When it comes to blitz training drills, Carles Puyol most definitely still has it.

The former Barcelona captain has posted a video of him going through his paces in the back garden, along with an intriguing caption that reveals he is "working on a new project."

The mesmerising clip is rounded off by a lovely little dinked finish from a man you're more likely to associate with full-blooded blocks and heroic last-ditch sliding tackles.

It was even enough to earn a round of emoji applause from former Barca cohort Javier Mascherano in the comments.

As for the new project, we eagerly await further developments.
