Sport social: a skier goes all Flashdance on us and a face-planting golfer

This week’s sport social media round up also covers an innovative dance troupe, a couple of very random meet ups and one of the Beckham kids taking the mickey out of their mum’s on-court tennis shoes.

A right royal week for British gymnastics

A ‘pitch invader’ at the snooker…

When you’re clobbered by the media – to be fair this tennis player often brings it on himself – the supportive tweets do still get through.

Wonderful innovative dance troupe – check this out.

A very random meet up!

Fourth. The worst place.

When watching your kid play tennis for hours, make sure you wear sensible footwear. I’M TALKING TO YOU VICTORIA BECKHAM!

My greatest supporter #mumwatching3hoursoftennis #inmajorheels @victoriabeckham
