RB Leipzig striker Daniel Frahn has cashed in on the latest internet sensation by turning WWE wrestler Randy Orton's signature move into a goal celebration, performing the 'RKO' on a team-mate after scoring against VfL Bochum in a Bundesliga 2 game last Friday.

The 27-year-old German celebrated his close-range finish - which put the hosts 2-0 up at the Red Bull Arena - with a premeditated routine that involved USA international Terrence Boyd, who was on the receiving end of the move while warming up on the touchline.

Orton's signature finish, quite simply, consists of throwing his opponent to the ground 'out of nowhere', and there has been a series of different videos and other viral memes that have been doing the rounds on various social media sites.

It's not the first time that the RKO has been seen in football either, after Dundee duo Gary Harkins and Jim McAlister performed their version of the move in a Scottish Premier League match against Motherwell earlier this month.

Orton even tweeted the club's official account, advising the players to 'work on their form', but it's clear from a quick look at his Twitter profile that he's been enjoying the many different clips he's been sent relating to the signature finish.

For those remotely interested in the football, the match actually finished 2-0, lifting Leipzig up to third in the second tier table with 19 points from their first 11 games. Bochum remain eighth.

Alexander Zorniger's side will be in action again this evening when they take on Erzgebirge Aue at home in the League Cup, before hosting Kaiserslautern in their next league game on Monday 3 November.
