‘This is the greatest thing anyone has ever done’
You don’t have to be a bowls fan – at least, we’re pretty sure you don’t – to appreciate the wonder of this incredibly satisfying bowls shot which went wildly viral after it was shared by legendary ad man Trevor Beattie on Twitter.
The shot, by English indoor bowler Nick Brett, first went viral at the beginning of last year and has just gone into orbit all over again.

Incredible. The thing I love about this is the bowls ultras are so knowledgeable that they started to get excited by the trajectory ages before it hit. Love it in snooker too, when the crucible heads get a chubby after a break of 23 because they can see a 147 is on https://t.co/ddhHdPCiS3

And just in case you’re wondering, Brett and his fellow bowler Greg Hallow went on to win the world pairs title.
