Football star shows impressive reflexes by catching and drinking beer thrown from crowd

Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham, 18, displayed impressive hand-eye co-ordination as he caught a beer thrown from the crowd during his team’s win over Bayer Leverkusen and proceeded to take his very first drink of beer.

Bellingham was reportedly celebrating teammate Erling Haaland scoring a key late penalty that put Dortmund ahead in the dying stages of the game.

The Leverkusen fans reacted angrily and began pelting beers onto the pitch, per reports.

Bellingham though was unfazed, and expertly caught a cup full of beer before taking a drink from it.

“Perfect day for my first beer… Not a fan.” He later wrote on Twitter.

Earlier this month, a US Open tennis fan went viral after their beer-chugging antics were caught on the big screen.

Amid a tense third round match between Roberto Bautista-Agut and Felix Auger-Aliassime, cameras found a blonde woman in the crowd, who swiftly grabbed her beer and chugged the whole thing before holding her arms aloft in celebration as the crowd cheered.

She later chugged a second beer for the cameras as the match reached its conclusion.
