Chances are, if you’re a parent or have a little person in your life you love, your weekends are dominated by sport. Whether you love it or find it all a bit of a snooze, we all know how great sport is for kids for building resilience, team work and physical fitness. Which of course, is why we spend our Saturday and Sunday mornings freezing our arses off while our kids try their hardest to kick goals or get balls in nets.

It’s hard not to get a little too into it sometimes though. As much as sport is about all the things I listed above, everyone likes seeing their kids’ team come out on top from time to time. ‘Cos who doesn’t like to win?

One dad from Wales is winning the Internet this morning with a hilarious vid showing his ‘participation’ at his son’s local soccer match. While the opposing team were lining up for goal, the daddio of the goalie was giving his son a little pep talk, so the little guy was distracted and not watching the incoming goal. So, what’s a dad to do in this situation? Take a look….

While the little push ended up exactly as dad had intended with a brilliant save, the opposing team still got their goal thanks to another little superstar who used the rebound to his advantage. Regardless of the outcome, this vid is a little piece of Saturday morning sport GOLD!

Happy weekend!
