Trick of the week: The crossover

If Neo played football in The Matrix, the crossover would be his signature move. Almost mimicking a gravity defying kick by the leather clad action hero, world champion freestyler John Farnworth exposes a loop hole in Isaac Newton's theory.

For the crossover Farnworth flicks the ball up, swings his left foot over the top, before hopping off the ground, using his right foot to continue the juggle - with both feet in the air.

Sound impossible? Watch the planet's best freestyle make it look easy, providing a tutorial along the way.

John Farnworth is attempting to freestyle the London Marathon for Kick4Life.
