X user Darren originally posted the video with a caption that reads, “Just a South African schoolboy slotting a 75-metre kick. Clutch.” Though his post impressed many, some argued that the distance is not 75 meters but shorter. In a tweet on the same post, Darred added, “Initial post sent to me, the person said 75. I can see where the purists want this corrected. 65 at least, though.”
