A video of Manchester City full-back Joao Cancelo beating Adama Traore in a test of strength is one of the most impressive videos you may see today.
The clip was published by Manchester City PT’s official Twitter account and it shows the Portuguese full-back holding his own against powerhouse Traore.

What’s more impressive is that the 26-year-old didn’t slide off Traore as he is famous for being lathered up in baby oil in a bid to prevent defenders getting a hold of him.
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo confirmed the story that Traore covers himself in baby oil before games to make it harder for defenders to grab him and also to help prevent further injury to his shoulder.
It was revealed last August that the reason behind the strange ritual was to make it more difficult for opponents to get a grip of the Spaniard when trying to grab him or slow him down – except Cancelo.
