Bebeto's happy, smiling face cradling an imaginary baby is one of the iconic images of the 1994 World Cup in America.

The Brazilian striker unleashed the carefully choreographed celebration with his team-mates after scoring against the Netherlands in the quarter-final of USA 94'.

The celebration was in honour of his newborn son Mattheus who had been born just two days previously

Well now he has recreated that famous celebration with his son, now 20 (who else feels old?)

Bebeto posted the photograph on Instagram with presenter Patricia Poeta.

Mattheus has turned out to be a handy player himself, winning four caps for Brazil's U20 team.

He plays for his dad's old club Flamengo but has been linked with Juventus in the past.
