GIF: Did Diego Costa actually wax Xabi Alonso’s leg on the Spain bench today?

Nothing to see here, just Diego Costa physically waxing the leg of Xabi Alonso on the substitutes' bench during the Spain v Australia game today. Wait, what?

It would be understandable if the Spain players that weren’t involved in today’s clash with Australia didn’t have much interest in what was going on out on the pitch; both teams were already out so there was little but pride at stake after all.

Being disinterested is one thing, being so disinterested that you would actually wax the leg of a teammate while the match is going on is a whole other thing altogether, but that’s exactly what Diego Costa appeared to be doing to Xabi Alonso earlier today.
