A video of retired former Botswana president Ian Khama in a soccer match, has emerged on social media, with many marvelling at the lifestyle he has chosen after leaving the higher office of the land.

Khama, the son of Botswana's first post-independence leader, officially stepped down as president in March after serving the constitutional maximum of 10 years in office, according to AFP.

In the video posted to social media, Khama, in the number 10 jersey, is seen displaying some skills as he skillfully side-steps an opposition player to place the ball neatly at the back of the net in "world-class fashion".

Apart from playing football, Khama also seems to spend most of his time doing charity work, an evidenced by pictures on his Facebook page.

The page is full of pictures of him hanging out with villagers and donating some goodies to children.
