Vine: Robin van Persie’s unbelievable header looks even better when he’s wearing a cape

You might think it’s impossible to improve on the original, but the Internet has come up trumps once again and the geniuses at ESPN have created a vine with Van Persie wearing a cape as he launched himself towards Daley Blind’s inch-perfect long ball and floated a wonderful header past Iker Casillas.

A little crude perhaps, but Van Persie looking like some sort of superhero is still brilliant all the same. Feck off Batman, it’s Robin’s time to shine.
