Stop what you’re doing and watch Dani Alves open a beer with a bicycle kick

Just kick back with a drink, Dani.

Dani Alves is enjoying life in Turin by the looks of it.

The Brazilian defender recently ended his 14-year stay in Spain as he left left Barcelona for Juventus, kicking off speculation that Arsenal’s young Catalan Hector Bellerin could return to his hometown club.

During his time in Spain, Alves won every trophy there was to win, claiming titles in La Liga, the Champions League, the Fifa Club World Cup, Copa del Rey, Uefa Super Cup and the Supercopa de España with Barcelona in addition to his Uefa Cup titles from his time at Sevilla. In all, he has 28 winners’ medals from over a decade in Spain.

When you’ve won so much, it makes it a bit easier to recover from an embarrassing first-round exit from the Copa America at the hands (or should that just be the one hand?) of Peru.

With the country he now calls home eliminated from Euro 2016 by world champions Germany after a thrilling penalty shootout, Dani Alves gave a new meaning to kicking back with a beer.

Your mate might be able to open a cold one with a lighter or his teeth as a party trick, but Dani Alves needs just that sweet right foot of his. Sure, he causes a giant mess, but it looks damn cool.

Fair play Dani, now we just need to talk about those shorts.
