An insect landed on the lips of France’s goalkeeper during the World Cup match against Uruguay at the Nizhny Novgorod Stadium on Friday.
During the first half of the game, cameras captured Hugo Lloris wince in disgust.
He spat out the insect - believed to be a dragonfly - and quickly regained his composure.
The hot summer weather in Russia has left the players having to deal with an increasing number of insects throughout the tournament.
There is an unseasonably high number of dragonflies in Nizhny Novgorod, yet not as much as mosquitoes and midges.
