Odell Beckham Jr wowed the crowds at the 2017 Pro Bowl with his expert performance in the 'Drone Drop'.

OBJ has been one of the stars of the week, interacting with fans and putting on a show with one-handed catches throughout practices.

The New York Giants wide receiver came out on top of the 'Drone Drop' challenge, successfully catching three balls within the painted NFL badge in the centre of the field.

Falling from 85, 100 and 125 feet, the balls reached a speed of 45 miles per hour.

After Beckham's successful catches, it was down to his former college team-mate Jarvis Landry to try and steal the win. The Miami Dolphins WR found success in the 'Hands Challenge', but struggled to keep his eyes on the prize in this task.

Beckham is taking part in his third Pro Bowl, having been selected every year since he came into the league. With double digit touchdowns for the third straight season, the Giants superstar led his team to the play-offs, but they fell at the first hurdle, coming up short against the Green Bay Packers in Wild Card Weekend.
