Although the dab was originated in the Atlanta hip-hop scene and made popular in American sports by NFL superstar Cam Newton, Paul Pogba is responsible for introducing it to England.

The Manchester United star has made it his trademark celebration, performing the move a handful of times since his summer arrival from Juventus.

Whether you like it or not, the dab will be remembered by the youth of today for years to come. And, unlike such crazes as the Harlem shake, it may even stick around for plenty of years simply due to its simplicity.

One French maths teacher has even gone as far as to use it for educational purposes.

In a story brought to our attention by 101GreatGoals, Twitter user @tqlsnrise has posted an image of a maths conundrum that includes a picture of Pogba performing the dab and showing the angles that the move makes.

The tweet has received more than 8,000 retweets, with Pogba himself replying.

Check out the tweet and Pogba’s response below.

The 23-year-old’s tweet translates roughly as: “The dab is useful, am I approved?”.

Who would have thought the dab would hold so much significance?

Carrick is backing Pogba to come good

Pogba’s return to United hasn’t been as successful as first hoped, with Jose Mourinho struggling to identify the Frenchman’s best position.

However, Michael Carrick is backing the £89 million man to come good.

“There's a lot made of Paul,” Carrick told Sky Sports, via the Daily Mail. “I suppose because of the fee and the headlines he grabs.

“I mean the attributes he has are incredible. We all saw the goal against Swansea. Physically, he is pretty much perfect. He's such a specimen and he can cover ground. The ability he's got is something very special.

“But, at the same time it is not easy coming in and hitting the ground running, be at top form. At this club for starters – changing leagues, changing countries. There are all sorts of things that come into it.

“He's going to be such a great player. He's already such a top player and I'm sure he's going to improve.”
