Arjen Robben Has Become a Pinata in Mexico After His World Cup Dive

Hitting a pinata is a classic Mexican tradition, and Mexico fans really can't stand Arjen Robben.

So the Robben pinata was, in many ways, something of an inevitability.

The Dutchman's dive to win a penalty that dumped Mexico out in the last 16 of the World Cup made him less than popular in that part of the world.

So what better way of moving on than whacking him (in full diving pose) with a stick until treats come out of him?
