Hilarious Video Of Neymar Teaching Mbappe The Floss dance

They are partners on the pitch, sweeping all before them in Ligue 1, and now PSG team-mates Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have combined off it too in a hilarious video posted by the Ligue 1 club.

In a continuation of their on-field dynamic, the video shows Brazilian star Neymar teaching young apprentice Mbappe how to do the popular floss dance.

Neymar guides an initially uncomfortable Mbappe through the steps of the dance, with the 19-year-old quickly mastering the technique.

What is the floss dance? The ‘floss dance' was invented by 16-year-old US Instagram star Russell Horning known as The Backpack Kid in 2016. Fans of his dance videos began to copy his moves – and in May 2017, the floss really took off when he performed it on Saturday Night Live alongside Katy Perry.

With former PSG star Zlatan Ibrahimovic among those to have been filmed doing the floss on live television, the French club were quick to ask the Swedish hitman for his opinion.

Neymar and Mbappe are next expected to be in action on Friday night as PSG host second-placed Lille in a top of the table clash.
