(Video) Real Madrid use robot in free-kick practice

European champions Real Madrid have been using robots to defend free-kicks in training sessions this season.

Most professional clubs use static mannequins to form defensive walls during set-piece drills.

But Real Madrid has been upgraded to a robotic mannequin that jumps after a free kick is taken, just like a real defender.

Real shared including Tony Cross And footage of players including Luka Modric trying to beat the robots, all adorned in the style of the club’s famous home jersey, with Ronaldo-style abs.

Training with bots is likely to work, as Real captain Karim Benzema scored directly from a free-kick in a 3-1 win over Espanyol last weekend.

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti revealed last month that his assistant coach son David “has done a lot of work on set pieces” this summer.
