Referee Gives Kaka A Yellow Card Before Taking Selfie With Him

In what was surely a first in football, legendary Brazilian Kaka was shown a yellow card just so the referee could take a selfie with him last night.

The former AC Milan and Real Madrid maestro pulled on the Selecao shirt once more in a charity match for peace in Israel and was on the scoresheet in a 4-2 victory for Brazil.

Ronaldinho, Roberto Carlos, Rivaldo, Cafu and Bebeto were also among the legends taking part in the friendly fixture but it was Kaka who was the biggest hit - with even the person officiating the game wanting a picture with him.


Incredibly, while the 2007 Ballon d'Or was dribbling in midfield with his side 3-2 up, the female referee blew the whistle and stopped the game for a moment.

Much to Kaka's confusion, the official then went to her pocket and booked him - before getting her phone out and asking for a selfie with the 37-year old - who was more than happy to oblige.

The Brazil players made it even better by shaking the ref's hand and creating a nice, fun moment in the charity game.

Earlier this year, Brazilian referee Fernanda Colombo produced a similar moment of brilliance in the Estrellas de Ecuador league.

Colombo, who is also a sports journalist, presenter and commentator, was officiating a friendly when she called over Barcelona Sporting Club midfielder Kitu Díaz.

The 30-year-old reached into her pocket and many thought she was going to brandish a yellow card.

But in a hilarious moment, Colombo instead revealed a white handkerchief to wipe her brow.

Diaz's face is priceless as the referee holds a huge grin on her face. He was convinced the referee was going to book him for an earlier incident.
