Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard has explained his unusual goal celebration against Middlesbrough on Sunday afternoon, which saw him dancing a jig while playing an imaginary flute.
Dancing a jig.
While playing an imaginary flute.
That is an actual thing that happened.
Lingard now moves ahead of Kane and Alli with the worst celebration of the year.

The 24-year-old broke out the celebration after hammering home a scorching long-range strike at the Riverside, before explaining to MUTV after the game that the moves - widely ridiculed on Twitter, because obviously - was down to a promise to a friend that he would pay tribute to a new Drake track Portland if he scored.

He told his club's website: "It’s a new album that's just dropped by Drake. One of the songs. I promised a mate I’d do that celebration if I scored, so I did it!
"Obviously, there weren't many options on at the time. I decided to take it on myself and it went in the top corner. Every goal is important and it was a massive game to win today and climb the table."
