Dwight Yorke has demonstrated that he still has the magic touch, when challenged to some keepy-uppy-with-a-twist, by magician and card fiend Damien O’Brien. Yorke joined with fellow former United stars Norman Whiteside and Quinton Fortune, at the recent partypoker Road to Old Trafford tournament.
The former players were wowed by O’Brien’s trickery, before being assigned a mission to master some magic of their own. After several failed attempts, it was Yorke that rose to the challenge, accomplishing an astonishing card kick-up.
Unfortunately for the Old Trafford maintenance staff, Quinton Fortune revealed a trick of his own – how to make a ceiling panel disappear. Having failed to get to grips with the cards, Quinton seemed more comfortable with a ball at his feet – before a keepy-up went astray, literally bringing the roof down at the Theatre of Dreams.
