Arsenal fan favourite and owner of the hardest shot in football, Lukas Podolski, has been trying his hand at sumo wrestling.
The German surprised many people when he opted to move to Japan to sign for Vissel Kobe back in the summer of 2017 but he seems to be loving his time there.
So far, he’s managed to score 13 goals (with eight assists) in his 48 games for the J League side where he now plays alongside Andres Iniesta.
One of the best things about Poldi is his love of life and willingness to embrace whatever culture he finds himself living in.
As you can see from the photos below, he seems to have had a great time facing up to a few Sumo stars, including the ‘Lionel Messi’ of the sport, Hakuho Sho who has won 83% of his fights to date and as registered more than 1,000 victories.
