Watch Xabi Alonso looking effortlessly skilled with an American football

Xabi Alonso is the epitome of cool. He has provided more proof while in the states with Bayern Munich for their preseason tour.

Not content with being a legendary footballer, the Spanish midfielder also showed off impressive control of an American football.

It isn’t even his first time showing mastery of the US game.

While on tour there with Real Madrid in 2014, Alonso also showed definite signs of promise.

*Sigh* He puts the rest of us to shame really.
