Francesco Totti is 38 years old. 

But during Roma's 2-2 draw against Lazio, the elder Italian proved his youth in two different ways. 

First, he scored both of Roma's goals. He's still got it. 

Second, he celebrated one of his goals by partaking in a practice typically reserved for the young: He took a selfie. Not only did he take a selfie, but his "duck face" was surprisingly on point as well.

Roma shared the result of Totti's camerawork on their official Facebook page in the match's aftermath. 

While selfies are often scoffed at (some clubs are banning "selfie sticks"!), Tottie's antics were met with widespread approval. 

Well, mostly widespread. It wasn't without at least one get-off-my-lawn moment: 

What a sad way for a legend like Totti to move towards the conclusion of his career...with a "selfie".
