Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has received some criticism recently for his performances on the pitch. Some are suggesting that perhaps the Dutch striker is starting to get a bit over-the-hill.
Of course, he did not look that way when scoring a fantastic header for Holland at the World Cup. He flew through the air to score an incredible strike against Spain, as the Dutch went on to win 5-1 under future Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal.
It caused a sensation across the globe as well. Many people were posting on Facebook and Twitter their own impression of Van Persie's headed goal, #Persieing went viral.
The picture that got the most traction was of his opa, grandfather to me and you, doing it. The 93-year-old Wim Ras showing age is just a number by joining in the social media craze.
He became a mini celebrity for a couple of days in The Netherlands after the incident and last night he was in attendance as his grandson scored the opening goal in a 6-0 win.
One day he might even make the trip over to Manchester to watch his son at Old Trafford.
