Steve Nash certainly had his injury problems through his incredible 19-year NBA career, but the former point guard has kept himself in great shape after calling time on his basketball journey in 2015.

The two-time Most Valuable Player is an avid football fan - a diehard Tottenham Hotspur supporter - and took his love for the game to a new level in January as he was part of a group, involving Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver and Suns vice chairman Andy Kohlberg, to purchase a $21 million stake in Spanish Segunda Division team RCD Mallorca.

The Balearic Island club recently posted a video of Nash showing off his football technique, and we have to say he is pretty good.

The 42-year-old shows he is still light on his feet, maneuvering obstacles with consummate ease before firing a right-footed shot past a helpless goalkeeper. The clip goes on to show the South African-born Canadian precisely stroking another effort off the post and into the back of the net.

Nash has a rich history with the sport, being co-owner of MLS' Vancouver Whitecaps since the team entered the league in 2011 and often competes in charity games - recently hosting his own event in New York where Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic took part.

The former Phoenix superstar will be in the United Kingdom next weekend, appearing at 'NBA Crossover', an event in Shoreditch, London to celebrate the links between the NBA and popular culture. While in the capital, Nash is likely to take in a game of his beloved Spurs.
