United legend shows he's still got the magic touch

Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke proved he's still got it with some card-based keepy ups.

Yorke and fellow former United stars, Quinton Fortune and Norman Whiteside were challenged to the trick by magician and card trick expert, Damien O'Brien.

While Fortune struggled to master the trick, Yorke, a hero of the 1999 treble winning squad eventually nailed the trick, much to the delight of those in attendance at the party poker Road to Old Trafford tournament. 

The Trinidadian duly celebrated, showing off his trademark beaming smile to his adoring public. 

Fortune would also bring the roof down, but somewhat unfortunately, it was in a much more literal sense. Opting to swap cards for a more familiar object, the South African faired no better as he only succeeded in dislodging a ceiling panel in an Old Trafford conference room.

Despite his misdemeanor, Fortune found the funny side, he said: "I didn't have much luck with the cards today, but certainly proved why the football at Old Trafford is played on the pitch and not in the conference rooms. Fair play to Yorkie who nailed it eventually!"

Kicking a playing card can't be that hard, right? Watch the video and see for yourselves.
