Didier Drogba might have retired from football but if he ever decides to return to active professional sport, he might make a killing in basketball.
The former Ivory Coast and Chelsea striker decided to try his hands (literally) at basketball when he visited a school in his native country.
Drogba picked up the ball and went through a whole range of moves – through the legs and behind the backcrossing over his opponent before passing.
The 42-year-old then received the ball back and knocked down an impressive jumper.
Drogba’s bid to become the president of Ivory Coast’s Football Federation hit a snag after his application was invalidated.
However, a probe by football’s world governing body, FIFA in the processes has seen the election stalled.
It appears, however, that if Drogba’s presidency bid ultimately fails, he always has a potential basketball career to fall back on.
