And the award for the most ridiculous dive of the season so far goes to...Washington of Brazilian side Palmas!

The Serie D (fourth tier) side were drawing 0-0 with Remo as their match ticked over into injury time Saturday when Washington hit the deck with Oscar-winning sincerity despite having considerable distance between him and the closest defender.

Protests from Remo's players fell on deaf ears, as the referee was sold, and the home side converted the penalty for the win.
