Are you really a proper Australian if you don't do a shoey while celebrating a victory in life?

Whether it's for a birthday, anniversary, work promotion, wedding, or even the birth of a child - doing a shoey has become somewhat of a necessity to mark a momentous occasion.

Well, true blue MotoGP rider Jack Miller did exactly that when celebrating his latest victory over the weekend.

Miller became the first Australian in history to claim back-to-back wins as he came out on top in the French MotoGP at Le Mans.

And while the race itself made for an exhilarating spectacle, it was nothing in comparison to the events that unfolded on the podium afterwards.

Once all the formalities were over, Miller celebrated alongside Johann Zarco and Fabio Quartararo by popping champagne.

But instead of just sipping it and enjoying the moment, Miller did what every loveable larrakin would do and decided to pour it into his sweaty, smelly race boot.

He then tipped his head back and skolled the drink while being sprayed with champagne himself.

Aussie star Daniel Ricciardo first introduced the shoey to the Formula 1 world a few years back, now his fellow countryman Miller is doing it on the MotoGP circuit.
