WATCH: Cesc Fabregas shatters Morata’s bizarre egg theory

Morata believes that unlike his confidence, eggs don’t shatter when falling on grass

Alvaro Morata may not be a big believer in himself, but he’s certainly confident when it comes to a rather bizarre egg theory. It goes a something like this: regardless of how high or far you throw a (raw) egg, as long as it lands on natural grass, it will NOT shatter.

Sounds unlikely, to say the least.

Fortunately, at a recent training session, Cesc Fabregas decided to test this theory, with Kepa Arrizabalaga (providing expert throwing technique tips) and Danny Drinkwater (ever the cheerleader) on hand to witness and certify the experiment. And laugh their heads off when the experiment produces the expected results not once, but twice. Repeatability is always key!

But wait! There’s more.

Unable to admit defeat to the laws of nature and physics, Morata then posted not one, but three (3!) videos in response, showing that in specific circumstances, it is indeed possible for an egg to land safely.


Morata claims that it’s because his grass is 100% natural, while the one at Cobham is 50% artificial. We think it’s because he’s only using 50% of his brain, if that.

For what it’s worth, the official egg toss distance record is 81m. Yes, there is a Wikipedia page for this.
