Yes, the Lionesses’ incredible Euro 2020 match against Sweden on Tuesday night had many of us glued to our television screens, but we’d like to bring your attention to another amazing football which has gone viral online.
It happened on Saturday, during a Scottish football match between Elgin City and Queen of the South, but one of the most dramatic moments happened off-pitch when a football struck a spectator, sending his cup of soup flying into the air.
The moment, captured by Queen of the South photographer Fraser Johnstone, sees supporter Kevin Russell hold on to his sausage roll in his left hand, while the soup decorates his plain white t-shirt.
And if that wasn’t astonishing enough, the same picture includes a woman next to him cowering from the flying ball, in a way which many Twitter users have said looks like a ‘dab’.
Hang this in the freaking Louvre, people!
Sharing the snap to social media on Sunday, Elgin City FC described it as “arguably the best picture ever taken at a football match”.
\u201c6/10 for the dab - even though its a cracking effort considering the circumstances she has poor extension on the right arm and her head isn't far enough into her elbow crease.\u201d

Others, meanwhile, paid attention to a more subtle part of the iconic photograph: a man to the very left of the image wearing a piece of Stone Island clothing and managing to “get the badge in”:
\u201cSomehow the attention here has been stolen by the #badgein.\n\nIt\u2019s absolutely textbook. Perfect 90 degree angle, edge of the frame and even managed to keep his face out of it.\n\nThe police will have a hard time identifying him after his altercation with the away fans.\n\n9.8/10.\u201d
Akin to a good old fashioned photobomb, “Get the Badge In” is a meme which celebrates individuals who have managed to sneak in the Stone Island logo on their sleeve into the most unusual settings and fashion.
And if missing out on the soup and becoming a meme wasn’t bad enough for Kevin, Elgin City lost the match 2-0 against their opponents.
Somebody buy the man a drink.
