Wigan bounced back from 2-0 down to claim a point at in-form Bury, but Leon Barnett stole the show with this bizarre backwards fall over an advertising hoarding while gearing up for a throw-in.

The Latics defender’s weird tumble was happily captured for posterity by a fan, who was kind enough to tweet it for us all to enjoy.
