Atletico Mineiro star Robinho was hit by a lighter thrown from the stands during his team's Copa Libertadores clash with Racing Club on Wednesday.
As reported by Goal's Matthew Judge, the former Real Madrid man tried to take a corner kick under heavy police protection, but the lighter found its way past the policemen and hit him in the shoulder. Here's a look at the video, courtesy of Goal:
The official had no interest in stopping or delaying the match, even after Robinho showed him the lighter, and after a short break in play, the two sides continued.
The incident took place early in the second half, with the score still tied at 0-0. Neither team would score in the first leg of the tie, with the second leg to be played in Brazil.
