It's no secret that Kobe Bryant is a soccer fan. So with the 2014 FIFA World Cup underway, the Los Angeles Lakers superstar decided to show Brazilian fans what he can do with his feet.

The Black Mamba visited Nike's Casa Fenomenal in Rio de Janeiro on Saturday and kicked a ball around with some of the locals. 

Good news, Lakers fans: Bryant looked healthy moving around the court.
