Juventus star player, Cristiano Ronaldo has commenced another challenge for his fans to enjoy the stay at home order mandated by health authorities to stop the spread of the novel Covid-19. The five times Balon d’Or winner dubbed it the Living Cup Challenge that will see any contender lie down with his/her face facing the ceiling then doing core crushers for as long they can.
Cristiano Ronaldo started the challenge and dare anyone to do the same and see if they will come near or beat his record. He did about 142 core crushers in just 45 seconds. He posted the video on his Instagram handle and call on anyone willing to contend his score.
Reasonably, former Chelsea star player Didier Drogba has joined the challenge. He did about 122 core crushers in 45 seconds. Funnily, the Ivory Coast football legend is not aiming at beating the record of the five-times world best footballer, he just wanted to join the challenge and see what he can do.
Drogba fell slightly behind Cristiano Ronaldo’s 142 core crushers, he uploaded the video of his challenge tagging Cristiano Ronaldo. He explained that 122 core crushers are not a bad one for a 42-year-old retired footballer.
Didier Drogba gained popularity in Premier League when he became the top goal scorer for Chelsea between 2004 to 2012. He appeared in over 226 games for Chelsea and scored more than 100 goals. The most exciting moment of his trade in Chelsea was in 2012 when the team won their first Champions League trophy against Bayern Munich.
Chelsea had almost given up hope on the title after Thomas Muller’s header gave Bayern Munich an edge over Chelsea. However, a flipped header from Didier Drogba gave the Blues all the inspiration they needed to crush Bayern Munich during the penalty shootouts. Interestingly, Didier Drogba had another swell moment when he nets the final penalty kick that won the cup for Chelsea.
Drogba left Stamford Bridge in 2012 and made an unexpected return in 2014. Then and there again he won another Premier League cup for the club in 2014.
