Kid checking his phone smashed in the face by wayward shot from Real Madrid’s Marcelo (Video)

That must have really, really hurt...

Ben Kenyon

You might think that with Real Madrid’s deadly accuracy around the goal, it’s safe to sit behind the net and check your phone.

That’s probably what this unlucky kid thought as he happily tapped away on his mobile during Madrid’s 0-0 draw with Valerenga.

But the poor lad was so, so wrong. Marcelo’s thunderbolt missed the target and smashed him square in the face, sending his phone flying.

We hope he’s alright, but let this be a lesson to anyone sitting behind the goal (or if you’re a Newcastle fan – anywhere up to Row Z) – never take your eye off the ball.
