Not many of you may know this, but Roberto Rivelino invented the elastico dribble. Well, he either invented it or perfected it, but the point is that he was really, really good at it in his prime. Like, Ronaldinho before he partied himself out of Barcelona good.
Plus he had that ‘stache, that glorious, glorious ‘stache. They just don’t make ‘em like they used to.

I don’t know who Jortz Constanza is, but he hit the nail on the head right there.
It turns out he’s still got the ‘stache, and the skills aren’t far behind either. Goal.com managed to capture him pulling off his trademark move at the ripe age of 69, and he makes it look so easy.
Why is the video tricked out with a psychedelic edit? No clue. Although it does add a certain charm, no? His skills are mesmerizing, even at almost 70 years old.
