Anthony Elanga almost breaks world record with insane box jump
Someone's had their Weetabix
Anthony Elanga almost displayed superhuman skills during Manchester United's pre-season tests as he was inches away from making a record-breaking box jump.
The 20-year-old had returned to prepare for the start of the season and appears to have been eating his weetabix and training hard.
Elanga managed to produce a 63-inch box jump which is only four inches away from breaking a world record. That's seriously talented stuff and if you're jealous that you can't do that then I don't blame you one bit.

After completing the jump the Sweden international turned and let out a huge cheer following his accomplishment.
Erik ten Hag is working hard with his side during pre-season
The United squad have been working under new manager Erik ten Hag, who is preparing for his first season in charge of the Red Devils.
United will be looking to significantly improve after last season's dismal campaign which saw them miss out on a Champions League spot and finish sixth in the table.
Ten Hag is also hoping to make several additions to the squad as he attempts to rebuild United and take them back to the glory days.
Primary target Frenkie de Jong is proving to be a difficult task given his reluctance to leave Barcelona, who are open to selling the midfielder due to their perilous financial state.
Surely not even Manchester United would spend weeks chasing a player only to find out he doesn't actually want to move when they finally get close to agreeing a fee? https://t.co/GpAFFZS22O

One signing that does look likely to go through is the move for Feyenoord full-back Tyrell Malacia. United entered negotiations at the eleventh hour after it was reported that Lyon had agreed a £15m fee for the 22-year-old.
Feyenoord have come to an agreement with both clubs and are awaiting to hear Malacia's final decision, however, it looks all but confirmed that he will be a United player sooner rather than later.
