Shaquille O’Neal on Gauthier Mvumbi

The Democratic Republic of Congo made their Handball World Cup against Argentina and made Gauthier Mvumbi Thierry a star.

The 26-year-old is 1.92 metres tall and weighs 110 kilograms, going viral for his unique physique. He became so famous that he even reached NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, who sent him a video via Instagram.

“They say you’re the Shaq of handball, what’s happening?” O’Neal said in a video shared on his stories.

When he saw it, the handball ace was unsurprisingly shocked and reacted in awe.

“A dream come true, I can’t believe it, my idol @shaq, my star,” Mvumbi responded.

“Thank you for your message and your support, I don’t really understand what’s happening but I have to say something: Live your dreams and fight for what they are.”

Mvumbi has scored four shots against Argentina and four against Denmark with a 100 percent shot conversion rate so far at the World Cup.

The International Handball Federation say that Mvumbi plays for Dreux AC, in the French fourth division.
