Gabriel Jesus has his own emoji for the World Cup


Each time he scores a goal, Gabriel Jesus systematically reproduces the same gesture: he runs to the corner post by mimicking a phone with his hand and says: “Alo Mae!” (“Hi Mom !”)

A reference to his mother, who gives him a call for each of his goals, and who called all his friends when he was younger and he did not answer his phone.

This celebration, explained by the Manchester City player for The Player’s Tribune last December, is now on Twitter, for the World Cup, a dedicated emoji, representing the Brazilian striker and his famous gesture, and is displayed by typing the hashtag #AloMae on the social network.
