Flailing arms, wild kicks and and a theatric fall to top it all off. This is Pepe at his absolute finest.
We’ve already confirmed that Jordi Alba claimed the prize for the most ridiculous theatrics in Tuesday night’s El Clasico but Real Madrid centre-half Pepe came a close second with this display.
With arms and legs flailing wildly, the Portuguese battled for possession with three Barcelona players.
He ends the mele with face-clutching fall to earth following a gentle nudge from Sergio Busquets.
While it’s disappointing to see this kind of tomfoolery, an El Clasico really wouldn’t be an El Clasico without some outrageous behaviour from Pepe, so on this occasion we saw the funny side.
Real Madrid won the match 3-1 at the Nou Camp, to progress to the Copa del Rey final.
