VIDEO: Saints bring Sochi to the south coast, with 'human curling'

Southampton Football Club

A video posted by Southampton defender José Fonte shows the Saints players attempting Curling in the dressing room, with an interesting type of stone.

In a video that is sure to be on this weekend's football shows and across your screens elsewhere, Southampton's players put their very own spin on the sport of Curling.

Curling has risen to prominence with the British public in the last week, following the televised coverage of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

The sport appears to have captured the attention of not only the Great British public, but also the Southampton dressing room.

The video below, courtesy of José Fonte's account on Instagram, shows the Saints stars attempting their own game of Curling.

In the short clip, Jay Rodriguez plays the role of sweeper, whilst Jack Cork (balancing on a board, we might add) is used as their very own curling stone.
