Happy international break everyone! Manchester United and France star Paul Pogba was released from national team duty at the beginning of last week due to a minor injury. He’s expected to be fit for action when United resume their season this weekend, but in the meantime he’s on holiday in Dubai.

Part of that vacation has included his race against a tortoise, which pokes fun at his infamous penalty walk-up. He posted the video with the giant turtle on his official Instagram account and caption the clip with “Pogba penalty run vs turtle…I’m not THAT slow  #winner #race #dubai
