Video: Is this the worst celebration of all time?

In an Italian amateur game between Ponticelli and Riolo Terme, the away team's goalscorer was sent off for a crazy celebration.

A goal in an amateur game in Italy has become an internet sensation after the scorer opted for one of the weirdest celebrations ever seen.

The away team, Riolo Terme, had just scored in a 3-1 win over Ponticelli when their scorer got carried away.

Having run away from his cheering teammates, the scorer reaches the bench and proceeds to jump headfirst through the glass.

The home fans are understandably indignant while Riolo Terme's players look baffled and the referee has no option but to issue a red card.

It's one of the strangest ways to be sent off and the video has become a massive hit in Italy, catapulting the tiny team to fame but perhaps not in the way they would have wanted.
