Hate it or love it, the selfie bug keeps on spreading in enormous scale….
When Roma legend, Francesco Totti put his club side level against Lazio over the weekend, it meant more than just the 48th minute equalizer to him. It also meant he became the club’s record top goal scorer – a record unbroken for the better part of the last 6 decades – and he knew exactly how he was going to celebrate.
Totti got on the end of well-executed cross by Kevin Strootman to lay a perfectly finished lop over Lazio’s keeper. He then proceeded to the back of the pitch were he motioned for a club official on the stands to hand him his iPhone 6, fiddled for a moment to launch the camera app and took the now famous selfie
Here’s the resulting shot.
