The Atletico Madrid striker scored twice to sink Germany and book France's place in the Euro 2016 final and used his trademark celebration once again in Marseille


Ever wondered where Antoine Griezmann gets his celebration from?

Is it a tribute to Ronaldinho?


A twist on Thierry Henry’s ‘wazzup’ celebration?

Wrong again.

In fact, Griezmann is actually paying tribute to the dance move in Drake’s Hotline Bling track.

“I’ve been doing it when I score for Atletico and I should have done it when I scored against Albania, but the emotion was too much and I forgot about it,” the forward said before his two goals fired France past Germany and into the Euro 2016 final.

“The same thing happened when I equalised against Ireland. For the second goal, I remembered.”
