As the Netherlands' joint-top scorer at the World Cup, it's fair to say Robin van Persie usually does the talking with his feet.

But the 30-year-old demonstrated an impressive level of hand-eye co-ordination while on the beach with Netherlands assistant coach Patrick Kluivert.

The pair had been at the beach with their children in Brazil and looked in good spirits as they showed the locals how their skills aren't just limited to their feet with the help of a couple of beach bats.

The footage, sourced from van Persie's Instagram account, shows the duo playing a series of no-look trick shots, and Kluivert managed to replicate van Persie's suave movements without much trouble at all.

Watch the video below:


Based on this viewing, it wouldn't come as a surprise to see van Persie making a late entry for Wimbledon.
