Raheem Sterling might have gone off the boil for Manchester City in recent weeks, but he showed he's still got his touch by winning Rule'm Sports' woodwork challenge.

The Manchester City man had to hit the left post, the crossbar, and finally the right post, in that order, or risk a forfeit of 20 press-ups.

Woodwork challenge 

Arsenal seem to manage it every week, but Sterling and co. found it can be pretty difficult to repeatedly hit the upright.

Joined by Rule'm presenters KSI and FIFAManny, he was the first to hit the woodwork, followed by some pretty spectacular dancing. It took him four attempts, but after that, he was away.

He's no stranger to showing off a few tekkers, and it looks like he enjoyed the chance to flaunt some of his skills. 

Watch it here:

The England international, who City reportedly paid Liverpool £49million for, is hoping the second half of the season won't scupper his England chances.

Sterling's skills 

He was a key player for Manuel Pellegrini's side before Christmas, but he has struggled for form and confidence since then, though that could be said of the Citizens' more generally. 

However, in winning the woodwork challenge he showed a little bit of the skill he has in his locker that made him one of Europe's hottest young prospects just a couple of years ago.

At 21, Sterling has plenty of time to get back to his best, and can look forward to the guardianship of a certain Pep Guardiola at City next season.
