Barcelona star Sergio Busquets produced a genius piece of s***housery to prevent a last-minute goal which would have seen his side lose their La Liga match against Cadiz.
Neither team had found the net as Cadiz were attacking down the wing in the 96th minute, but there was an extra ball on the pitch in the Barcelona box.
Busquets, who was named club captain following Lionel Messi's departure, ran up to it and booted it at the Cadiz winger who had the legal ball at his feet.
The precise pass struck the opposing player, which forced referee Carlos del Cerro Grande to blow his whistle and put a stop to the attack.
The resulting cross was turned home by the attacker but play had already been stopped so Busquets could be given a yellow card for his actions.
The 33-year-old was nearly hit with instant karma as Cadiz came close to scoring from the free-kick which was awarded, but his side did escape with a point.
Manager Ronald Koeman protested the decision to book Busquets which resulted in him being shown a straight red card.

Serious pressure is mounting on the former Southampton and Everton boss after a poor start to the season which sees his team sat seventh in the table after five games played.
They have picked up nine points from those fixtures and are already seven points adrift of leaders Real Madrid, albeit having played one match less than their El Clasico rivals.
They suffered a disastrous 3-0 home defeat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League before only managing a 1-1 draw with Granada in their previous two fixtures.
The Dutchman is in genuine danger of losing his job a little over a year since he was appointed to the role.
The Catalan giants face a vital game against Levante at the Nou Camp on Sunday which will more than likely see Koeman sacked should they fail to win.
