Goalkeeper smoothly catches bottle of water in interview

Marseille goalkeeper and captain Steve Mandanda recently showed why he chose to be a goalkeeper during a postmatch interview. Marseille had just beaten Toulouse 6-1 and a Toulouse fan decided the time was right for revenge. In the video above, we can see a water bottle being thrown at Mandanda. Still in keeper-mode, Mandanda reacts quickly, catching the bottle. Then, in an act of classic cool, Mandanda offers it to the surprised journalist. Pretty smooth, Mandanda. Pretty smooth. You get the Billy Dee Award for Smoothness for the month.
