Bob Hawke sculls beer at SCG Test, wins standing ovation

FORMER Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke, now 87-years-old, has sculled a beer to a standing ovation at the SCG Test match.

Hawke necked the frothy while pictured on the big screen during the third Test against Pakistan.

The former Labor leader's party trick is fast becoming a tradition at the Sydney Test - he performed a similar feat in 2012 when Australia took on India.

Hawke's feats on the amber ale first came to prominence when it was revealed he set a yard glass world speed drinking record in 1955 as a student in Oxford.

Hawke is currently the No.1 trending topic on social media.
