Give them the flowers while they can still smell them.
Keagan Dolly is ensuring he plays his part in this when it comes to this philosophy.
The Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana midfielder, and free kick wizard, paid tribute to fellow spot kick master Lionel Messi following the latter's 2022 FIFA World Cup triumph.

One @mpumelomkhize at the Amakhosi outfit shared a video on TikTok of Dolly and his teammates preparing to start practice, with the latter laughing and joking about his unashamed reverence of the veteran striker.
Interestingly, Dolly's former team, Mamelodi Sundowns took on Barcelona and Messi at Soccer City in May 2018, with La Blaugrana winning that friendly match 3-0, according to TimesLIVE.
It seems the midfielder has made up his mind about who the football GOAT is.
Argentina fan knocking himself out
One Argentinian fan will remember his team's 2022 FIFA World Cup final victory in a rather painful manner.
A viral video showed the unnamed man losing his mind when La Albiceleste scored a goal during the epic 3-3 draw against France. He proceeded to take his shirt off as he started running.
Spectacularly, he attempted to dash out of the building where he was watching with other supporters.
World Cup: incredible records broken

While the usual suspects were involved in the business end of the competition, it was a tournament of upsets and newly broken ground.
Along the way, a catalogue of long-standing records fell as history unfolded before the eyes of spectators at stadiums and viewers at home, Sports Brief reported.
