VIDEO: Liverpool player Divock Origi does the ice bucket challenge

Liverpool's summer signing Divock Origi has become the latest footballer to take part in the ice bucket challenge.

Liverpool player Divock Origi has done what a number of footballers have done before him, allowing teammates to pour ice-cold water over his head.

The ice bucket challenge is the latest craze to pass through social media platforms and has already found its way to Hollywood as well as most of the major European football leagues.

Currently on loan at French side Lille, Origi posted a video of his challenge on his official Instagram account, although it is not clear who - if anyone - he went on to nominate.

While he appears to be having fun off the pitch, Origi has not had the start to the new campaign that he would have been hoping for.

He scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot in a 1-0 victory over Caen but that is his only significant contribution to date.  But considering he is only 19, it is to be expected that his form will not always be that of a £10million player.

In time it is expected Liverpool will benefit considerably from a player who already has one impressive World Cup campaign under his belt.
