Swedish full-back Emil Holm earned the dubious honour of taking the world's worst free-kick last night.
Being a dead-ball specialist is no easy feat but when you step up with confidence, you do need to deliver.
Holm took on the responsibility during SonderjyskE's 1-0 win over Vejle Boldklub in the Danish League.
The 21-year-old smashed the ball with all his might - which then saw it fly up and out of the stadium.
Out of the STADIUM. Hitting row Z is a solid feat, but clearing the entire ground?
Holm couldn't help but let out a wry smile before jogging back into defence.
Fans have reacted to the free-kick and they think it could be up there as the worst in football history.
That's gonna end up in some foreign galaxy and they'll think it's a UFO https://t.co/BgCT5fduDr- Jabba :flag_black: (@davidlochhead03) July 26, 2021
I bet the neighbors will never give the ball back. https://t.co/4NjaA6zSLI- Keith Naas (@knaas) July 26, 2021
Truly impressive to get it out of the stadium. https://t.co/5cTtfAg5KS- I am an apeman (@im_an_ape_man) July 26, 2021

It's actually pretty hard to kick a ball out of the stadium. So props to him. NFL may have found their new all-star kicker.- Jack De Larrinaga (@JackDeLarrinaga) July 26, 2021
Holm has actually scored five times in 20 games for SonderjyskE, meaning he averages a goal every four game from defence. Not too shabby.
Maybe he should be off free-kick duty for the time being though?
Even some of the world's best players have come undone from free-kicks, albeit by complete accident.
The Red Devils drew 1-1 against Aston Villa but very nearly sealed a win in bizarre circumstances.
Both men were stood over the ball and struck it at the same time, forcing a save from Villa goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel.
You never know until you try it.
