Player Falls Into Hole Celebrating Goal

You're on top of the world. And then you've fallen down a hole. It's a funny old game.

Cameroonian striker Joel suffered a hilarious (and probably quite painful) mishap as he wheeled away after scoring for Coritiba in a Brazilian Serie A match against Sao Paulo. Attempting to reach the adoring fans behind the goal, he jumped over an advertising hoarding, only to discover a photographer's pit lurking behind. He emerged a few seconds later, looking fairly dazed, after being helped out by stewards.

He will have cheered up by the fact that his side went on to win 3-1. He'll probably celebrate his next goal in 50s fashion: a solid handshake followed by a purposeful stride to back to the centre circle.
