In Brazil's Serie A league, Coritiba striker Joel put in two goals but his big night was spoiled during his celebration of the second as he took a tumble after jumping over the pitch's sideboards.

On first watch it appears as though Joel just disappears after the jump, but during a replay it becomes clear that there was a hole on the other side of the boards, and security tried to prevent the Cameroonian star's leap.

Joel appeared pretty shaken up following the incident but was able to finish the game.
