‘Most Straya moment ever’: Hawkey does it again

 

FORMER Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke, now 88-years-old, has skolled a beer to a standing ovation at the SCG Test match.

Hawke necked the frothy while on the big screen during day two the fifth Test against England.

It was only appropriate that Shane Warne was on commentary for Channel Nine, the legendary leggie - himself a fan of the drink - egging on the former PM to down his cold one.

The former Labor leader's party trick is fast becoming a tradition at the Sydney Test - he performed similar feats in 2012, 2014 and 2017 during Tests against India and Pakistan.

Hawke's achievements on the amber ale first came to prominence when it was revealed he set a yard glass world speed drinking record in 1955 as a student in Oxford.

Hawke was the talk of social media after his latest effort.
