Professional boxer, heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk can play football, too.

He showed it as he made his debut, at the age of 35, in a friendly game between Polissya and Veres Rivne.

He shadowboxed on the touchline during his warm-up before he came on in the 76th minute.

And he missed a glorious chance shortly after coming on. A teammate cut back to him from the right-hand side but Usyk swung his leg and missed the ball.

You can't say it was a nightmare debut though! Usyk launched Polissya's counter-attack with a daring run.

Watch Usyk's highlights from the game:
