Game of ‘how’s your touch?’. Normally consists of your mate hoofin’ the ball up in the air, with another one of your pals – who has two left feet – shouting, ‘how’s yours???!!!!’.
As usual, the ball is neither controlled with any form of accuracy or skill, and ends up 20 yards from its first point of contact. Basically, we all have the touch of [insert any BBC member during the 70’s] here.
But, not when you’re Luis Suarez… wow, eat your heart out Ronaldinho.
"How's your touch?!" For Luis Suarez, even trapping a ball dropped from a crane 35 metres up is no problem pic.twitter.com/q236f0fST8

How the Barcelona man managed to control a ball flying from 35 metres with more skill, precision and ease than my Nan baking a Victoria Sponge is beyond us. If you can impress Lionel Messi like that, you know you’ve done something right.
The challenge from the crane was a promotion with F2 Freestyle act, who to be honest, are just a budget duo of Andrew Henderson. And the launch was a marketing stunt for Adidas, a group who are strangely being tracked down by some group in the Middle East… The Uruguayan should probably stay clear.
Sadly for Barca’s No.9, the striker wasn’t the stand out performer, as Billy Wingrove, managed to better than former Liverpool player’s touch. Billy managed a few inches higher, by controlling the ball from 35.27 meters.
How??!!! Billy Wingrove might not be as good a freestyler as Henderson, but he’s probably got the greatest touch on the planet.
Actually, saying that. That is a lie. The Boss. The Don. The King of one touch – Ronaldinho – will always have the greatest control on the planet… and this will forever be the video to beat.
Sorry, Luis and Billy…
