Man Utd's Nani brands goal celebration "death leap"

Manchester United signing Nani describes his spectacular goal celebration as a "death leap".

Everytime he scores for club or country, Nani celebrates with a somersault, based on the Brazilian martial art dance, capoeira, which he used to practise as a boy.

"I had to leave capoeira, but whenever I've scored a fantastic goal I've celebrated it with a death leap," he said.
