Brazilian player yellow cards the referee

Footballers and referees have a love-hate relationship which seems to swing more to the hate side as illustrated by Brazilian defender André Luís' antics in the Copa America the other night. Unhappy at being booked, the Botafogo player snatched the yellow card from the ref's hand and waved it back to him.

Sadly for Luís the ref didn't see the funny side and sent the player for an early shower. It's not the first time this year that the Botafogo defender has hit the headlines. He refused to leave the pitch after being sent off earlier in the year leading to the police being called. Someone get that guy a chill pill.
