Zinedine Zidane fell off a horse and still managed to look elegant

Zinedine Zidane somehow manages to look elegant when falling off a horse.

The France and Real Madrid legend is one undoubtedly one of the most gifted footballers ever to play the game, boasting a dreamy first touch and a supreme dribbling ability.

In his playing days, everything Zidane did looked so slick and that's also the case when riding a horse.

Zidane might be too tall to be a jockey but a video of him on a stallion has been doing the rounds on social media.

The horse lost its balance and so Zidane looked like he was heading for a nasty fall.

But the 1998 Ballon d'Or winner managed to smooth things out in incredible fashion, landing on his feet and then performing a swift and stunning forward roll.

It was like something straight out of a film scene and it makes you wonder whether Zidane would be the perfect fit to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond.

'Zizou' has been out of work since leaving Real Madrid for the second time in 2021. He was replaced by Carlo Ancelotti, who guided Los Blancos to a La Liga and Champions League double last term after embarking on a second stint last term.

The 50-year-old has been linked with a number of different managerial posts, including the France national team, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.

However, he does not appear to be in any rush to return to the dugout anytime soon.
