Mexican taekwondo players have performed a "Mannequin Challenge" video in a bid to raise support for the Taekwondo Humanitarian Foundation (THF).

The video, which can be watched below, shows members of the Mexican national team frozen in action before breaking objects with dynamic kicks and punches.

It was posted on the THF Facebook page in a bid to boost support for the flagship World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) development programme.

"Mannequin Challenges" are a viral internet video trend in which people are frozen in action like mannequins while a moving camera films them.

It has been especially popular among footballers and other sportspeople across the world.

The THF, which was established in April 2016, aims to empower refugee children by teaching them the sport and martial art of taekwondo.

Successful projects have already taken place in Jordan, Turkey and Nepal.

The Mexican video has been viewed 2,500 times on Facebook.

Mexico are the fourth most successful nation in the history of Olympic taekwondo after South Korea, China and the United States.

They have won two gold, two silver and three bronze medals since the sport was added to the full programme at Sydney 2000.
