Footballers do the darnedest things.

From Roy Keane to Nigel de Jong, we've seen some of the most renowned players vilified for making shock tackles and career-altering decisions. Gentlemen, you have company.

Saturday's CAF Super Cup final (Africa's continental equivalent of the UEFA Super Cup) saw Congolese giants TP Mazembe run out 2-1 winners over Tunisian side Etoile du Sahiel, but Kabaso Chongo made the sort of studs-up challenge that would have seen one sent off within seconds in a Sunday league.

But not in this encounter. Watch (and prepare to cringe like you've never done before):

Ouch! Right in the crown jewels!

To make matters worse, Chongo's tackle warranted only a yellow card from the referee.
