Twitter can be ruthlessly funny at times. Russell Wilson found that out the hard way after the social media platform became rife with memes when the quarterback’s antics on the flight to London for the upcoming NFL game against the Jacksonville Jaguars were revealed.
Wilson admitted that while on the eight-hour flight to the UK capital he was doing “high knees and working on my legs and everything else, making sure I’m ready to rock.” His team mates, on the other hand, were trying to get some much-needed shuteye in preparation of the game.
Twitter was filled with hilarious memes, taking a humorous pop at the Broncos quarterback. His team mates didn’t see the funny side- it’s not exactly easy to get to sleep with someone jumping around in the aisle next to you.
It’s difficult to picture a man of Wilson’s build doing squats and stretches in a narrow plane aisle, but the Broncos wide receiver KJ Hamler confirmed it did indeed happen.
Hopefully Wilson’s preparation pays off. The Broncos take on the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley on the 30th of October.
