Emiliano Martinez shocked World Cup fans when he celebrated his Golden Glove award with a lewd gesture in front of billions of global TV viewers.

The Aston Villa goalkeeper held the trophy, a giant gold-plated hand, to his groin and waved it about at the post-match ceremony at the Lusail Stadium in Doha.

Martinez had been the hero of Argentina's penalty shootout win, saving one spot-kick from Kingsley Coman and watching Aurelien Tchouameni hit another wide, and went on to win the best goalkeeper award.
