Athletics star Blanka has a new nickname for brother Nikola
World athletics star Blanka Vlasic was bigging up her little brother again last night - young Everton forward Nikola Vlasic.
Messages of support from the woman recognised as the second greatest high jumper of all-time have been a familiar feature on social media site Twitter, since brother Nikola signed for the Blues from Hajduk Split.
And after Nikola struck twice in Croatia Under-21s 5-1 victory over the Czech Republic in a European Championship qualifier, Blanka was quick to respond.
Watching the match from a now familiar vantage point at home in Split Blanka tweeted a video of Nikola's wonderful run, dribble and finish with the message "Art! Bossboy scores for Croatia U21" - then when Nikola doubled his tally nine minutes from time she added: "Ooops.. he did it again!" - ending with the message "Looks like #bossboy is all warmed up for the Blues #coyb"
