Video: Iker Casillas picks nose, wipes it on child's face
Nose-pickers are often faced with the problem of where to dispense of their dirty snot. Iker Casillas simply decided to wipe it on a young child’s face.
The Real Madrid stopper picked his nose and subsequently wiped his filthy hand on the face of a young mascot prior to the Champions League clash with Apoel Nicosia earlier in the week and he would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn’t for the pesky television cameras filming in the tunnel before the game.
The young chap in question seems delighted to be on the receiving end of a touching gesture from the World Cup winning netminder, until he realises what Casillas has done and grimaces while he removes the offending bogey from his cheek.
It was textbook snot-dispensing from Casillas: pick the nose, wait a few seconds and pretend you’re doing something else (in this case, checking his studs) before getting rid of the waste while nobody’s looking.
Except in this case, somebody was looking, millions of people in fact. Why couldn’t he have just rubbed it into his glove or something?
Check out Casillas’ disgusting act for yourself in the video above.
