Lion-el Messi! Lioness dribbles ball like a pro at Belgium zoo

A lioness at Olmense Zoo in north-eastern Belgium has shown off her quality ball control.

The video shows the big cat enjoying the chase around her enclosure with a bright red ball as she dribbles with both front paws.

The filmer said that the beast "looks like a pregnant white lion," later adding: "She certainly loves that red ball and has a good kick about."

The footage was captured earlier this month (July 8).
