Steyn wrestles lioness on his day off

2015-01-26 14:37

Cape Town - Proteas fast bowler Dale Steyn, who has been rested for the two last ODIs against the West Indies, wrestled with a much tougher opponent than Chris Gayle over the weekend.

The 'Steyn remover' as he is often called, loves spending time outdoors and used some of his much-needed downtime getting friendly with a powerful lioness. Steyn posted a video on his Instagram account on Sunday.

The lioness shows her superiority for a few seconds before a ranger pulls her massive paw from over Steyn's head.
