After any major sporting incident there is usually a long post mortem when the media dissect it in detail. Nowadays you can be sure that a Taiwanese animation will accompany all of this coverage. They wasted little time fashioning one about Eden Hazard's kick on a ball boy against Swansea.
While many animations can be accused of embellishing facts for comedic value, that probably isn't the case here. If you play the original video slowly you can just about make out the clam like figure firmly clamped on the ball. Hazard didn't have any other choice really.
