A player appeared to be knocked unconscious after a shot hit him in the head during a five-a-side game on Thursday night.
Sports Reporter Philasande Sixaba was caught in the face by the ball at extremely close range in the match in Johannesburg, South Africa.
A member of the opposition team can be seen to take a shot on first time and thwack a strike towards goal.
Defending, Sixaba ends up with his head directly in the line of fire.

He collapses onto the ground in a crumpled heap before the video cuts out.
His friend, who uploaded the clip, has assured viewers that the player has since made a full recovery.
