This 42-shot table tennis rally has to be seen to be believed

Xu Xin and Zhu Linfeng are straight into The42 Hall of Fame.


Table tennis fans in China were treated to a moment of pure sporting theatre when Xu Xin and Zhu Linfeng played out a rally so epic that it could nearly be turned into a three-act stage show.

Count the shots if you like (42) — or even better, count the amount of times the point seems to be done and dusted only for Xu or Zhu to pull off a remarkable recovery.

Again. And again. And again.
