Justin Bieber wows with mad skills in Teqball match as popstar shows off football technique – The Sun

JUSTIN BIEBER went from rapper to tippy-tapper by showing off stunning flicks and tricks in new craze Teqball.

The popstar juggled the special ball with both feet before leaping with a superstar flourish to volley it over a curved table in a game of doubles.

The Grammy Award-winner follows playing legends like Ronaldinho, Lionel Messi, Neymar and Marcus Rashford in taking up the sort of cross between football and table tennis.

And Bieber suggested his ball-skills can be almost as artistic as his musical talent with some velvety touches.

The 25-year-old paraded his gifts at the Dogpound WeHo Gym in West Hollywood, which is part-owned by Teqball co-founder György Gattyán and X-Men actor Hugh Jackman.

Gattyán said: “Justin is a fan of Dogpound and Teqball and it’s great to see his spectacular Teqball skills in between sessions.

"We would not be surprised to see him playing the sport more often, making Teqball part of his lifestyle.”


Premier League giants like Manchester United and Arsenal have already embraced the sport – invented in Hungary five years ago.

Many clubs believe Teqball's deft and delicate style is ideal for enhancing players' skill and control.

United's England duo Rashford and Jesse Lingard are among its big-name fans.

And – Bieber Espana! – Teqball is also popular in Spain, including with Atletico Madrid's £113million new boy Joao Felix.

Barcelona legend Messi and PSG's Neymar, who could yet be reunited at the Nou Camp, both have Teqball tables in their gardens.

And Brazilian former tennis pro Natalia Guitler has also become a sensation in the fledgling sport.

Apart from being the top female performer at last year’s Teqball World Cup in France, she wows fans by posting beach photos of her acrobatic wizardry, albeit also in footvolley.

Teqball is now played in 66 countries, having gained recognition from the Asian and African Olympic bodies.

And its long-term goal is inclusion in the Olympics itself, both for singles and doubles.
