Ref takes one to the head

This may look like a keep fit initiative for obese men in their twenties, but it is actually the Russian Premier League. The referee awards a free kick in the match between Amkar and Kuban, but certainly isn’t expecting the resulting dead ball to come flying towards his noggin.

The blow knocks the referee off his feet. When he sits up he looks towards the offending player like a puppy who has received a slap from its owner for no good reason!
