Why do players hop about then run when coming back on?

Maybe this should be a thread about odd football things that annoy you but yeah why do players do that obligatory fake hop and limp for a few metres then run back to normal when they've had a few seconds "injury" break.

It’s a special dance a shaman brought to the Premier League in the mid-nineties that caught on.

It asks the god of muscular therapy to grant them protection and heals any knocks they picked up.

Or so it is written, on the Mitre ball given to us from the Gods.
