Robert Lewandowski makes infamous skill challenge look easy during Barcelona presentaton, he nailed it

Barcelona forward Robert Lewandowski gave the 59,026 in attendance a skill show to remember during his Nou Camp presentation on Friday. We've seen these go wrong over the years, but this was impressive. Check it out below.

Last month, after months of speculation, one of the most talked about transfers of the summer was wrapped up when Lewandowski left Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich to join Barcelona.

The 33-year-old has penned a three-year deal with an option to extend for a further 12 months after the Catalan giants splashed a reported £42.5 million on his signature.

On Friday morning, he was presented as a Barcelona player at the Nou Camp by president Joan Laporta.

As is traditional at the Catalan club, Lewandowski showed off his ability to the crowd with a brief skill challenge.

And the striker clearly wanted to make a great first impression. He pulled off a number of moves, including Zlatan's famous 'Matrix' chest control, and was even given the nickname 'Robert Lewandinho' by Barcelona's social media team.

“The emotion was amazing when I saw so many people for my presentation," Lewandowski said in his press conference.

"I do not have words to express my happiness. That was something amazing. I want to show my skill on the pitch and give the fans happiness all over the world.”

As mentioned earlier, we've seen the good and the bad during these skill challenges down the years.

Earlier this year, for example, Adama Traore gave a performance Ronaldinho would have been proud of in his presentation – the complete opposite to Ousmane Dembele's efforts when he joined Barca.

Back in 2017, after joining from Borussia Dortmund for a reported £97 million plus a potential £38 million in add-ons, Dembele struggled to even perform one skill move never mind a few on the bounce. Remember this?

Dembele isn't the only player to crumble as the cameras click away. Martin Braithwaite, Sergino Dest and several Real Madrid players, including Marco Asensio, have been left red faced after attempting the famous skill challenge.

Thoughts on Lewandowski's skills at his official presentation on Friday? Will he be a success for Xavi's side this season?

Let us know in the comments.
