PRO-GOLFER Rory McIlroy shows off his new footie skills just in time for the World Cup.
The 29-year-old, from Down, showed he is definitely not a one-trick pony when he posted a clip to Instagram last night.
He posted the video of himself playing keepie uppies a day before the launch of the competition.
He simply wrote: “Take one ⚽🎬”.
And the sports star sent his own fans into a frenzy on Instagram.
One follower joked: “Well looks like you’ve got a back up career.”
Another said: “If only you played for the US, maybe we would’ve made the Cup.”
While someone else wrote: “World cup open today! Like a soccer player-brilliant.”
However many people commenting were worried for Rory and referencing the ligaments he tore in his ankle back in 2015 after having a kickabout with friends leaving him unable to play in the Scottish Open.
And one concerned user said: “Plz don’t break your ankle again, my hero @rorymcilroy”
This hidden talent comes after Rory had no answer to golfing “robot” as Francesco Molinari’s laser-like hitting brought him a two stroke victory at the BMW PGA Championship.
The Italian ace did closed with a four under par 68, and he did not make a single bogey in the final 44 holes.
The former world No 1 said: “I turned to Harry, my caddie, and said Francesco was just like a robot – he never seemed to miss a shot, ever!”
