This moped featured heavily in Benfica's league-winning celebrations
When you said he had a good engine…
When Benfica secured their fourth consecutive Portuguese league title this weekend, they probably didn’t think a moped would steal the headlines.
But it did, and the result is something completely bizarre – this is not what we envisaged when we heard mention of celebratory doughtnuts.
Why wouldn't you celebrate winning the league by doing doughnuts on a moped in your own dressing room?!— BT Sport Football (@btsportfootball) May 14, 2017

Yes, after Benfica’s 5-0 win against Vitoria Guimaraes sealed the title, keeping them five points clear of Porto with a game left, defender Eliseu decided it was scooter time.
The fans were as baffled as us.

Just priceless to watch— david taylor (@IcemanDavid2k10) May 14, 2017
And as it happens, that wasn’t the only time Eliseu’s now famous moped (surely the most famous vehicle in all of sport) was on show.
The two-wheeled phenomenon made its way onto the pitch as well…
… and also found its way onto the red carpet. The pair of them are inseparable, obviously.
We’re looking forward to seeing Eden Hazard on a unicycle when Chelsea lift the Premier League title.
