Daniel Ricciardo Nails Half-Court Shot At Phoenix Suns Training Facility

What can't this man do?

Daniel Ricciardo has nailed a half-court shot with ease while having a look around the Phoenix Suns' training facilities.

And while skeptics will undoubtedly question whether it was done first try, Ricciardo insists it was - and even has "witnesses" to prove it.

The Aussie is making the most of his spare time during the F1 off-season and decided to pop in to visit Devin Booker and the Suns ahead of the revamped NBA season.

Ricciardo took pictures and videos as he strolled around the incredible five-star buildings, eventually stumbling upon the Suns' practice courts.

But like the rest of us fans, when Ricciardo sees an empty court with a basketball rolling around on it, he has to take a shot.

And that's exactly what he did.

In a video posted on his Instagram, the McLaren new boy is seen bouncing the ball a few times before eyeing up the hoop.

And despite some rather unconventional technique, he somehow manages to drain the impressive shot from his own half of the court.

Those in attendance all laughed and clapped.

But Ricciardo knew the value of having people watch, simply adding: "We have witnesses! First shot!"

The clip itself has been viewed over 1.6 million times by people on Instagram as users flocked to the comments section to heap praise on the 31-year-old.

UFC featherweight champion and fellow Aussie Alexander Volkanovski said: "He can do it all!"

While McLaren CEO Zak Brown added: "Bet you couldn't do that twice!"

McLaren then posted the footage on their own social media channels, with the caption: "Didn't mention that one on the CV @danielricciardo."
