Sepak Takraw

VIDEO: Malaysian GP winner Daniel Ricciardo tries sepak takraw for the first time!

It’s been an emotional weekend for Daniel Ricciardo as he clinched his first victory in over two years after winning the Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday evening.

The Red Bull Racing driver finished ahead of his teammate Max Verstappen as well as Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg, who were second and third, respectively.

But the highlight of his Malaysian trip wouldn’t necessarily only feature his feats on the Sepang track, as the Australian racer also tried ‘sepak takraw’ for the first time, a few days back!

Sepak takraw is a sport that’s hugely popular in Southeast Asia and it’s played like volleyball, to a certain extent. Players are only allowed to use their feet, knee, chest and head to touch the ball, which is made out of rattan.

Ricciardo and Max Verstappen both met the Malaysian national sepak takraw team and they had an interesting bout, as you’ll be able to see in the video below!
