“Perhaps it (the dance) was performed by an artist, but we trust that it was unintentional,” Okaz newspaper quoted Al-Sharif.

The ‘dab’ dance has become very popular among footballers. It was popularised by Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba. Pogba joined the Red Devils last season for a then world record transfer fee of £89.3 million from Juventus. A youth product of the club, the French midfielder rejoined them after a span of 3 yeaers.

A flamboyant and stylish player on the pitch, Paul Pogba introduced and popularised the much famous ‘dabbing’ into football. It became a trademark celebration of the player and soon several other footballers joined the trend.
