FANS are saying that "no DNA test is needed" after Dimitri Payet shared one of his son's goals on Twitter.
The ex-West Ham star, 36, shared a clip of his son scoring the sensational strike as he wished him a happy birthday.
The video shows the ball rolling out to the youngster, who expertly executes a rabona from the edge of the area.
Payet, who left West Ham for Marseille in 2017, was well known for his wondergoals for the Hammers.
And fans were quick to draw comparisons between father and son.
One fan wrote: "The same mastery as his Dad! Happy birthday to him."

They said: "Take us out for a legendary season and win your trophy with OM you deserve it the best 10 in the world."
Payet was a fan favourite at West Ham and his performances at the club from 2015 until 2017 saw him become a regular in the French national team.
But he left the London Stadium under a cloud after a protracted transfer saga.
Reflecting on his decision to leave the Hammers, Payet said he looks back on his time in claret and blue fondly and asked fans to forgive his decision to leave.
He said: "I spent 18 months [at West Ham] full of emotions and excitement after Euro 2016 but no, I don’t have any regrets. It was a choice I made, a personal choice and a family-based choice as well.
"Since I left West Ham I have stayed at Marseille, I haven’t gone to any other club and don’t intend on going to any other club so it wasn’t leaving for the sake of leaving.
"It was a personal decision, a family decision and yeah, it was a pretty brutal break I suppose when I left, that’s true, but I hope over the course of the years West Ham fans have come to understand why I left.
"I would certainly like and hope to think that.”
