Watch the moment a coin lands on its side during the Colombia v Paraguay coin toss before yesterday’s Copa América group stage match.

Referee Heber López threw the coin up in the air to decide which team kicks off, as per tradition, but the process had to be repeated when it somehow managed to land side-up on the turf.

Respective captains James Rodríguez and Justo Villar had a good chuckle about it, before eventually playing out a match which Colombia won 2-1.

For any neutrals watching, though, the star of the show was undoubtedly this unlikeliest of coin tosses.
