Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson has enjoyed a fantastic first year in the Premier League, quickly becoming one of the best goalkeepers around and winning a Premier League and League Cup double with the Blues.
Now he can boast another achievement on top of his winners medals, having entered the Guinness World Records!
The 23-year-old has shown off a certificate he received that recognises him as the holder of the ‘longest drop kick in football (soccer)’ record. He was presented with it on 10 May, although it isn’t clear when exactly this feat was achieved.
Ederson’s passing range makes him one of the elite ‘sweeper keepers’ in world football, and part of that range is his ability to ping long passes accurately up the pitch. This award shows that he’s not only an accurate passer, but that he can kick the ball far – very far!
Here’s Ederson holding his certificate, courtesy of his Instagram Story.
