Each Madrid Derby is a football match full of power, passion and outrageous skill. The most recent edition was no different, but in the first half, it also featured something else.

A shocking dive by Real Madrid defender Pepe.

There's simply no other way to describe the incident, which came near the end of the opening 45 minutes. See for yourself in the GIF below:


Well played, Pepe, but it's too late for an Oscar nomination—this year at least.
