In example #89873473487 most Americans don’t believe the world exists outside the borders of the United States comes a bizarre netball story.

How can one video divide the UK, break hearts in Australia and blow minds in America?

Exactly like this.

The dramatic moment England stole victory from Australia at the death in the final of the netball at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in April is going viral all over again.

The reason? America has finally discovered netball exists — and the country is both spellbound and confused by the whole concept.

Adorably in some cases, alarmingly oblivious in others.

The clip unfortunately centres around one of the low points of the sporting year for Australia when the Aussies were beaten 52-51 on the siren in one of the most dramatic finishes ever seen on a netball court.

It was England’s first win over Australia in more than five years and the first time since netball was introduced at the Commonwealth Games in 1998 that Australia didn’t face New Zealand in the final.

Understandably, the English fell about the place in raptures after their breakthrough victory.

It was the obvious highlight of the English sporting year — and it was no surprise the gold medal win was awarded the greatest moment of the year at the BBC Sports Personality Of The Year Awards this week.

The English netball team were also awarded the prize for best English sporting team in 2018 — relegating the English football team and their World Cup campaign to runner-up.

Those awards are the reason America has caught wind of the incredible video — and the results are both hilarious and frightening.
