The Dab has become a mainstay of popular culture since the start of the year, as a celebratory dance move for sports stars everywhere.

The move involves a dancer throwing their hands to one angle in the air in a move that resembles sneezing (apparently). Many sports stars have used it and pulled it off to great effect.

But now Feyenoord’s former Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt has done it – and Twitter users are not pleased.

Dirk Kuyt Killed It

Remember Dirk Kuyt?
Well, he's just learnt how to dab.
His son won't speak to him for weeks after this.

Seeing Dirk Kuyt dab is the footballing equivalent of your dad doing it when he's pissed at a family wedding. #LFC

Dirk Kuyt's dab……. I'm done.

All this might seem a bit harsh on the Dutchman – he was only trying to get with the times right? Plus he’d just scored his third goal of the season, maybe he was overexcited?

Anyway, if it makes Kuyt feel better, it’s fair to say Sweden’s Olympic silver medallist horse-rider Peder Fredricson should have killed off the move a few weeks ago…

Nailed it Fredricson. Nailed it.
