Robin van Persie's amazing goal in Netherlands' World Cup-opening blowout win over Spain has made "van Persieing" — faking a dive to head an imaginary ball — all the rage in Twitter photos.
Even van Persie's 93-year-old grandfather got into the act.
From a Dutch newspaper: "The grandfather of the Manchester United striker produced the #persieing pose and explained that he could still get down to do the new Dutch craze because he used to be a gymnast: ‘But its getting more difficult because it’s not a position you get into every day.’"
