A hilarious video appears to show an old man controlling a bowling ball with just the flick of a wrist.

Linus Gustaffson was bowling in Kungsbacka, Sweden, on August 15 when an elderly guy in the lane next to him had one pin left standing.

Seeking a split with his second shot, the man’s throw appears to be heading directly for the gutter.

As the ball falls off the lane, the man’s handing can be seen flicking behind his back and, as if by magic, the ball bounces back out before knocking the final pin over, giving him a split.

Linus said: “I couldn’t believe it, it looked like the man had magical powers.”
