Cardiff City's Aron Gunnarsson may not be at the World Cup, but the Icelandic midfielder is clearly using his time wisely.

Gunnarsson is renowned for his Rory Delap-style long throw-ins, but a shoulder injury prevented him from reaching maximum velocity last season.

In a bid to show his return to fitness, the 25-year-old went back to 1998, found a giant computer monitor and proceeded to launch it.

He doesn't have both feet on the ground and the monitor doesn't go behind his head, so technically it's a foul throw. However, the Championship uses spherical balls rather than huge antiquated computer screens, so it shouldn't be a problem next season.
