Thierry Henry sparks Twitter sensation

Thierry Henry's new found celebration has sparked a Twitter sensation, with users creating memes for his bizarre goal celebration.

The 36-year-old first displayed the odd celebration upon scoring his 400th career goal in a MLS against Toronto FC.

Henry slid in to finish a tap-in and rather than celebrating in his usual manner, he merely walked over to the goal post and preceded to lean against it. With one arm on his hip in his usual "arrogant" manner.

But then again, when you've had a career as successful as his, you can afford to be a bit pretentious.

The following video shows him repeating the celebration for the second time, once again in an MLS fixture, but this time, after walking through the Houston defence and finishing with consummate ease.

And now.. the celebration - coined as "#Henrying" by Twitter users, has gone viral. Fans have even taken to photoshop to edit his celebration into real-life scenarios. 

Some of the best include: Henry holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa and also beating Maradonna to the "hand of God" goal.

Some of these can be seen on AFC Fisher's Twitter page, click here to view them.

Now that he's done it twice, will #Henrying catch on?
