Palmeiras captain Felipe Melo kicked official club photographer Cesar Greco while celebrating his side’s winning goal at Vasco da Gama on Sunday.
Fortunately it looked like more of a joke than a vicious attack from the former Brazil midfielder, who didn’t aim his kick hard enough to do damage.

At the time he was joining his teammates in celebration of Luiz Adriano’s 73rd minute goal, which sealed a 1-0 win in the Brazilian Série A match at the Estádio São Januário.
Unfortunately he also picked up an ankle injury during the game which looks set to sideline him for three to four months.
