The two football greats are currently in Johannesburg, South Africa as pundits for SuperSport TV for the ongoing 2021 AFCON.

While taking time off their punditry duties, the pair decided to deviate from football and face each other in a tennis game.

Gyan won the first set, but Okocha came back strongly to win the next two sets to emerge victorious.

In a video that has gone viral, the ex-Nigeria forward is seen bragging after winning the tennis contest.

"He is dead. He wanted to bamba and chill with the big boys. But he is running," a delighted Okocha teased.

Meanwhile, Gyan admitted that he was surprised by how good Okocha was on the tennis court.

"Honestly, he did well. First set I took it so I thought he was very very low to my standard. He did very very well, there were some balls I didn't think he will take but he did," he said.

Gyan has been playing tennis as a part-time sport ever since he parted ways with Turkish side Kayserispor.

He competed in the Accra Open earlier last year but was eliminated at the semi-final stage after losing to Richard Ogum.

In December, Gyan and his elder brother Baffour Gyan emerged champions of the men's double tennis event at the AMTEC championship.
