A pitch invader during Chelsea Women's 0-0 draw with Juventus in the Champions League suffered from an absolute bodying from striker Sam Kerr.
Whilst much of the focus was on Chelsea's men messing up their hopes of topping a Champions League group that included Juventus, the women were doing similar.
Emma Hayes' side, fresh of completing last season's domestic treble by beating Arsenal in the delayed FA Cup final, knew a win against Juve would secure them top spot.
Instead the two sides ended in a stalemate, which means the group will be decided on Matchday Six, but star striker Kerr still had the opportunity to take out some of her frustration on the night.
A pitch invader ran onto the ground and whilst he ran around he was booed from all corners, those dissenting voices turned to cheers as the Aussie striker ran across and casually body checked him to the ground.

The chorus of boos and shouts of w***er are very valid as the fan seems to be able to get away with running on the pitch with little or no security to get rid of him.
Kerr did pick up a yellow card for the incident, which occurred late in the game, which is right in the laws of the game but we can't help but appreciate her work.
There were also three pitch invaders during Manchester United men's team game against Young Boys on Wednesday night, which could be a worrying trend, with security taking some time to get all three men.
Chelsea went into the game with the Old Lady knowing that all three points would have seen them be uncatchable by Wolfsburg and Juve, with just one game to spare.
Kerr had a goal disallowed against Juve, as the Blues dominated the game with 25 shots and 72% possession, compared to the visitors two efforts on goal and 28% possession.
They are currently three points above the two sides in second and third but must travel to Germany on Matchday Six, on December 16th.
A draw will guarantee them top spot but a loss would likely see them eliminated from the competition, with Juventus at home to Swiss side Servette, who are yet to earn a point.
It's still better than the men, whose draw with Zenit St Petersburg saw them miss out on top spot in their group and could hand them a tough tie in the last 16.
