Manchester City coach David Platt retired from playing in 1998. But the ex-England international – who scored 27 goals in 62 international appearances – hasn’t lost it.

A video of Platt executing a sensational bicycle kick with consummate ease in an open training session 5-a-side game has gone viral on the internet. The clip was filmed in the Bukit Jalil National Stadium in Kuala Lumpur ahead of Manchester City’s game against a Malaysia XI.

Short videos from open training sessions featuring moments of scintillating skill have become widely watched on YouTube and shared on social media in recent months.
