The break in the football may in fact help Paul Pogba, the Manchester United man, who has spent most of this season out injured.
By the time the season re-starts he could be back fit and able to play a part in United’s challenge for the top four.
And it seems he’s added a new dimension to his training programme – pram racing.
The Frenchman’s wife posted a video of her racing her husband while he pushed a pram carrying their young child.
After a false start in the first video the midfielder claimed a narrow victory at the second attempt.
