Richarlison celebration: Everton forward channels Messi in Carabao Cup

Everton's Richarlison de Andrade, known simply as Richarlison, attempted to mimic Lionel Messi's infamous El Classico celebration during the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening against League One's Lincoln City, but fans were quick to point out that he didn't quite pull it off.
Everton's Richarlison de Andrade, known simply as Richarlison, attempted to mimic Lionel Messi's infamous El Classico celebration during the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening against League One's Lincoln City, but fans were quick to point out that he didn't quite pull it off. You may remember Messi's cheeky stunt as he mockingly showed his name and number up to the Real Madrid crowds having scored against them in La Liga's biggest derby match. But rival fans found Richarlison's celebration a little eccentric, seeing as he was scoring in the second round of the League Cup against Lincoln City in what should have been a pretty straight forward win - and what's more, he also didn't quite manage it correctly as he held up the shirt the wrong way round! Oops! Everton won the match 4-2 in the end, though.

Richarlison is not the first sports star to make headlines for a celebration though. In April 2019, Wolves player Raul Jimenez stood out on the field when he wore a mask to celebrate his goal against Watford at Wembley. The special mask was given to him as a gift by fellow Mexican, WWE superstar Sin Cara, and had the Wolves' badge printed all over it.

Normally winners hold up a flag, trophy or medal to celebrate, but this New Zealand athlete chose something a bit different. It's fitting though because Sam Webster's a cyclist and bagged gold in the Men's Sprint Final at the Commonwealth Games 2018.

England football forward Ellen White from Birmingham City FC likes to do this move when she scores a goal - and we saw it a lot in the Women's World Cup, after she scored six goals during the tournament. To celebrate the player, in June 2019, a painting appeared on a wall in her home town of Aylesbury showing the forward doing her distinctive "goggles" goal celebration.

When Spanish tennis champ Rafael Nadal wins a trophy or a medal, he likes to to give it a little nibble. We wonder what his dentist makes of this!

Here's how Australian weightlifter Francois Etoundi likes to celebrate a good lift. Check him out, mid-flip, during the 77kg final of the Commonwealth Games in 2018. He came third despite having an injured shoulder.

British Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah may have started his trademark move - nicknamed The Mobot - back at the London Olympics in 2012, but it remains one of the most famous sporting celebrations.

Usain Bolt, the fastest man in the world, has a celebration that is almost as famous as he is. This man with eight - yes, eight! - Olympic gold medals dominated the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, 2012's London Olympics and 2016's Rio Olympics in Brazil. His signature gesture has been recreated by fans all over the world.
