Real Madrid star James Rodriguez upstaged by daughter's bottle flip

Having found competitive action hard to come by at Real Madrid this season, James Rodriguez also suffered the embarrassment of being upstaged by his very own flesh and blood recently.

At a PR event for his energy drink brand, Rodriguez was tasked with conquering the bottle flip challenge -- basically spinning a bottle through the air and landing it the right way up.

The Colombia international had several attempts but repeatedly failed to stick the landing, only to then see his adorable three-year-old daughter Salome step up and nail it on the first go.

Rather than taking umbrage, James promptly shared the video on social media and took care to proudly proclaim his daughter to be "special."

Given the evidence on offer, we feel we must wholeheartedly agree!
