Did you know that our dear Jib Kor is a sports fan? As in, he enjoys playing sports. He even has his own personal trainer.

“I can’t wait for National Sports Day as I am a sports fan and practitioner. I have my own personal sports trainer," said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak. This is in regards to National Sports Day 2015 happening on 10 October, aiming to spur Malaysians in adopting a healthy lifestyle and lead to higher productivity. He has promised to participate in sports activites during National Sports Day celebration.

#TrueStory. Najib really likes sports.

Here is Najib playing golf

We all know he has played golf with some top guns namely US President Barack Obama and Tiger Woods. So he has got to have some skills, right?

This is Najib playing hockey

Najib announced the government's pledge for the 'Projek Hockey 1MAS' programme over a three-year period, starting 2011.

Maybe the prime minister could give it a shot himself methinks?

There is a running joke that 'Jib Kor' jinxed Spain, England and Brazil during the 2014 World Cup. The three teams that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak expressed support for crashed out of the World Cup. It was reported that before the World Cup, Najib said he was sentimental about England, liked the way Brazil played but predicted that Spain would retain the title.

However, Spain was crushed 5-1 in its opening match against Holland, and England failed to clear the group stage. Also, Brazil suffered its worst ever defeat in the semifinal against Germany, where the host nation lost 7-1

On second thought, maybe he should stay clear from this sport.

Najib really likes cycling too, but this is no secret

Ok lah, this isn't considered a 'real sport' (illegal actually) BUT we are Malaysians after all and those screaming, screeching tyre sounds you hear at night has to come form somewhere right?

As you can see, Najib is very good on two wheels

We tried searching for Najib plays badminton, but this is the closest thing we found #closeenough

Badminton must be more of Rosmah's sport.

Rosmah might not be too happy with Najib racing on two wheels though. Read what she had to say about mat rempits in our last #RandomWednesday:
