Alexis Saelemaekers's Gravity-Defying Skill Genuinely Looks Like A Glitch, It Needs An Explanation

Alexis Saelemaekers produced a skill so incredible that it genuinely looked like a glitch in a video game, we need an explanation.

Just after the match referee blew the whistle for half-time, the AC Milan midfielder performed a gravity-defying piece of skill that has stunned the football community.

So, he flicked the ball with his right foot, then back-heeled it with his left foot before kicking it out of touch in one ultra-smooth motion.

We've watched it over and over again - and still can't figure out what he's done and how he's managed that absurd skill.
