Former England and Liverpool footballer Michael Owen was wished happy birthday in a bizarre fashion by his very own daughter.

In a video that was posted online, the 39-year-old can be seen wrestling with his eldest daughter, 15-year-old Gemma Rose, who wrote: “Happy birthday dad. Love you really.”

In the 11-second clip, Gemma can be seen throwing a couple of slap-like punches before Owen Sr manages to take her down.

“My eldest has a unique way of showing her affection towards me,” he later wrote on Twitter.

And his 3.82 million followers were quick to find the funny side of it.

“Ahh… the old Ramos takedown. Happy Birthday! #40NextYearBritish,” British field hockey star Samantha Quek wrote.

One fan mocked his injury-plagued career, writing: “Surprised you got through it without doing your hammy.”

Owen has been working as a racehorse breeder since announcing his retirement from football in 2013.
