'Thibauting' included in poll for Belgian sports word of the year

Friday, November 29, 2013

Belgium have included the word "Thibauting", designed to pay homage to Atlético Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, in a poll to find out the best new sports word of the year.

The term was coined after fans began posting pictures online of themselves mimicking the 21-year-old's pose from a particular save against Real Betis at the start of January.

A tumblr account was opened to anybody to send in their photos of themselves re-enacting classic Courtois saves in their homes, workplaces, and anywhere else they fancy.

The definition of "Thibauting" is: "Emulating a classic Thibaut Courtois goalkeeping save in any random location."

It is pronounced "tee-boh-ing", after the craze started in honour of NFL star Tim Tebow.

You can vote for "Thibauting" here.
