The initiation song is a time-honoured, and often much-dreaded, tradition in many football clubs around the world.

Footballers may be elite-level athletes but for many their musical abilities struggle to reach similar heights.

Step forward England under-20 striker Tammy Abraham.

Having joined Swansea City on loan for the season from Premier League champions Chelsea, it was Abraham's turn to get on the mic as part of his initiation at the Welsh club.

However, instead of butchering Uncle Kracker's Follow Me (Jack Colback) or offering a rendition of Crazy Frog (Florent Malouda), Abraham proved his talents stretch beyond the football pitch with his version of a Boyz II Men classic.

Abraham has a bright future in football, but a career on the stage could be waiting for him if he fancies a change.
