Rodrigo Palacio's hair was the talk of Twitter after the Argentina international and his off-centre rat-tail made an appearance during the last-16 World Cup match against Switzerland.

At one point during the match, the cameras lingered on his hair and showed a slow-motion replay of it swinging as he jogged.

Armed with a screengrab, Photoshoppers set into action.

Miley Cyrus on her wrecking ball was perhaps the pick of the images:
