GIF: Atletico Madrid player comically trips up referee while tying his lace

We could watch this over and over again.

VALENCIA NEEDED a last minute goal from Helder Postiga to earn a 1-1 draw with Atltico Madrid in the Copa Del Rey last night.

And the game produced a moment of comedy gold in the 23rd minute when Atletico’s Joshua Guilavogui went down to lie his lace.

Unaware of the player behind him, referee Clos Gomez begins to trot backwards before goin right over the top of the French midfielder.
