Zidane

Wham! Zidane uses his head on Materazzi in the 2006 World Cup Final - Italy vs France, 9th July 2006

 

(Set up, photographed and loaded to Flickr within 15 minutes of the incident :-) )

 

When I set this picture up I never knew this (copied from Zidane's Wikipedia entry):

 

"Zidane was sponsored by LEGO for a while and wore their logo. He was the official endorser of their Soccer/Football line, and was also immortalised in plastic in the form of a LEGO minifigure of himself, available in several of the sets."

Here is a small set of pictures showing the same incident, plus other events from the final, courtesy of Mads Boedker.
