Sergio Busquets Produced 'One Of The Most Miraculous Recoveries Ever Seen On A Football Pitch' vs Dynamo Kyiv

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets looked like he was in a serious amount of pain during the latter stages of last night's Champions League clash against Dynamo Kyiv - that's until he produced one of the most miraculous recoveries in football history.

In the 88th minute of Tuesday's game in Ukraine - a Group E tie that finished 1-0 to Barca after a second-half winner from teenager Ansu Fati - the controversial 33-year-old certainly divided opinion with his on-field antics, with some finding it hilarious and some calling for a ban.

What do you think? You can see the clip below.

Busquets' so-called 'sh*thousery' certainly got people talking on the night.

One Twitter user said: "Should be a one-match ban. It's the only way. Retrospective punishment. It's gross. Atalanta players were at it all night too," while another commented: "This sort of play acting needs to stop. It's ruining the game.

Away from the miraculous recoveries and there is no doubting Busquets' ability.

Earlier this year, former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand explained how the Spaniard left him feeling like a "conference player" in their Champions League final defeat to Barcelona in 2011.

The Blaugrana midfielder was one of Spain's shining lights in the European Championship and after a sublime first-half performance against Italy in the semi-final, Ferdinand remembered the day he played against him.

"It was here at Wembley, and we got abused in that game by Barcelona, they were brilliant," he said.

"So your confidence is low and I was trying to get the ball back from him at a throw-in and he just said 'ah Ferdinand, Vidic, boom, boom, boom' [imitating long passes]. I felt like a conference player".
