Former Atlanta Hawks small forward Dominique Wilkins was often referred to by the aforementioned moniker due to his ridiculous and relentless slam-dunk conversions. That nickname transcended basketball and made it's way to professional wrestling as ECW performer Sabu adopted the stage name, while WWE commentators have dubbed high-flying Rob van Dam the same thing, too.

And now, perhaps we have one in football as, following on from his exploits with Brazil in this summer's Confederations Cup and his owning of Eden Hazard whilst warming-up in USA during Chelsea's pre-season, defender David Luiz has now added another merking to his growing wall-of-fame as the centre back nutmegged Barcelona's marquee summer signing Neymar (£48.6m) whilst on international duty with the Samba Stars.

Marcelo can be seen laughing in the background.

Brazil face Zambia in Beijing, China on Tuesday evening for an international friendly.
