Flamengo manager Jorge Jesus appeared to kick a television graphic of a football in half during Thursday’s Copa Libertadores win over Emelec.

A first half double from Gabriel Barbosa gave the Brazilian side a 2-0 win over their Ecuadorian counterparts in the round of 16 second leg game.

Tiago Fernandes, former coach of Sporting's youth team:

"I asked Jorge Jesus to take Leo to the first team and I told him, 'Gelson Martins has a lot of talent but Leao is the best player in the history of the Sporting academy.” pic.twitter.com/rtub1xqJkh

It drew them level on aggregate following a defeat by the same score the previous week, and they won 4-2 on penalties to progress to the quarter-finals of the competition.

And there was a moment of televisual trickery from former Sporting and Benfica coach Jesus when he kicked the air in frustration on the touchline.

In doing so, he unknowingly split a digitised ball in twain.
