Real Madrid And Spain Goalkeeper Iker Casillas Picks Nose And Wipes It On Mascot (VIDEO)

When goalkeepers concede a goal, commentators often holler "Pick that out!" But with Iker Casillas he picked out something much more sinister.

Regarded as one of the world's best goalkeepers, the 30-year-old would like to think he is the bogeyman who strikes fear into strikers, but he morphed into a more literal sense.

Spain and Real Madrid's captain was caught picking his nose thoroughly in the tunnel prior to his club side's Champions League clash with Apoel Nicosia last week, before wiping his hand on an unimpressed mascot's face.

The mascot, repulsed by the renowned 'keeper's action, can be seen grimacing before wiping his face of the gooey snot.
