Watch the moment Spain coach Vicente del Bosque is flattened by a linesman during his side’s 1-1 friendly draw with Italy.

The 65-year-old was patrolling his touchline when the assistant referee, facing the other way, came hurtling into him at full pelt and sent him crashing to the ground.

Seeing del Bosque clattered by the linesman might make you wince, but it would seem that no one was hurt – at least judging by the friendly handshake the two shared afterwards.

Substitute Lorenzo Insigne gave Italy a 68th minute lead in the Euro 2016 warm-up match, the first goal conceded by Spain in almost 700 minutes.

La Roja were level just two minutes later when 35-year-old Athletic Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz scored his first international goal, adding further gloss to his remarkable 31-goal season thus far.
