Over in Spain, Branislav Ivanovic has just scored an utterly sensational overhead kick. Yes, you are reading that correctly.

The Serbian, now plying his trade for Roberto Mancini's Zenit St Petersburg, scored the worldie in a 3-1 victory over Real Sociedad.

Aleksandr Yerokhin opened the scoring in the 35th minute, before Willian Jose equalised for La Real.

The game wasn't level for long though, as former Chelsea man Ivanovic went up for a corner and ended up scoring a goal he had no right to score. Get a load of this...

Bloody hell! That is not a goal you expect Branislav Ivanovic, a defender, to score. Chelsea fans probably reckon their eyes are deceiving them.

The ball gets knocked back in, he controls it perfectly on his chest and then the wonderful acrobatics ensued. The technique is simply stunning and his celebration with his teammates makes it even better. He can't believe he's scored such a goal.

Here's how social media reacted:

Ivanovic won three Premier Leagues, three FA Cups and one Champions Leagues in his 10-year stint at Chelsea but this overhead kick is comfortably his career highlight.
