Proving right the old adage that “age is just a number”, an elderly person recently schooled his grandson in a basketball match and even won a $20 bet. A video of the incident has gone viral, leaving netizens impressed.
Twitter user @gurpreetdhillon posted a video of the incident, where he is seen engaged in a game of basketball with his 10-year-old grandson. “My 10-year-old son still hasn’t learned his lesson to never underestimate his grandfather’s basketball skills!! Now he’s down $20!!,” the video caption said.

The video features both the grandfather and the little boy, who seem to be basketball enthusiasts. The video shows the kid and his grandfather engaging in a bet on shooting a basketball from a distance. The elderly man can be seen instructing his grandson, who ignores his advice and finally fails to shoot. However, the grandfather nets the ball in his first attempt, much to the delight of the kid and the netizens.
The post was flooded with hundreds of comments on the grandpa’s skills and some called him a “silent superstar”.
Grandpas are the best 👍👍👍
