Joe Hart was almost ridiculed by Andrea Pirlo again on Saturday when the Italian's stunning free-kick hit his crossbar, however the England goalkeeper was not spared embarrassment as the Brazilian ball boys caused him to blow a fuse.

After Pirlo's pearler pinged off the crossbar, Hart was not thrown a replacement ball and became so angry he threatened to turn green.

'Hey, hey, give me the f**** ball!' England keepe... on Twitpic

"Hey! Hey! Give me the fucking ball!" he demanded, before kicking the advertising hoardings, Temuri Ketsbaia-style.

Perhaps it's Karma for Hart saying "yes" to every single advert offer.

Brad Friedel once manhandled a ball boy at Bolton in 2003 with his Blackburn side trailing 2-1. The alacrity proved pivotal, as Rovers equalised in the 90th minute.
