Rove McManus Proves No Competition For 'Global Handball Champion' Kevin Rudd

Kevin Rudd is proving there is life after both politics and knee surgery, as he continues to dominate the handball courts of Australia.

In his latest victory, the former PM made quick work of Channel 10 host Rove McManus.

During his appearance on the latest episode of Saturday Night Rove, Rudd served up some serious serves in a simple best-of-three match.

Whether Rudd's win is a testament to his skill or McManus' lack thereof remains to be seen.

The former PM (x2) is currently making his way from school to school, facing off with students on the handball court in a bit to promote the National Apology Foundation for Indigenous Australians.

He announced his return to the sport earlier this month after recovering from knee surgery, calling for challengers to step up to the plate.

"So any of you guys who are looking for a handball championship game, I'm available," he said in a video posted to social media.

"Get ready to die."

So far, he has had matches at Marist College North Shore in North Sydney, Canberra Grammar School, and John Paul College in Brisbane.

We first caught a glimpse of his handball skills when a video of Rudd taking on a group of Brisbane high school students went viral in 2013.
