19-year-old Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey is widely tipped as one of the most exciting teenagers in European Football, but he's clearly still got a lot of growing up to do.

The Jamaican youngster was on a weekend holiday to Genk (his former club in Belgium) last week when he spotted someone acting a bit odd in the gym, and decided to go for the dick move of filming him and posting it on the internet.

He posted a video of someone doing boxing movement drills in front of the mirror, laughed, and called him a clown.

Thinking it would be a funny snap that he could send to his followers and nothing more, he posted the video and went about his day. Unfortunately for him, it quickly became clear that the man he was mocking was apparently a professional boxer by the name of Atif Tanriseven Ribera.

Word got back to the boxer and he was very upset. In an interview with HBVL.be, Ribera revealed that he asked his Facebook followers if anybody knew where he could find Bailey, and remarkably someone informed him that he was at a cafe in the city centre.

Ribera then took off on a mission to find the footballer and scold him, and he decided to broadcast the confrontation on Facebook Live. The boxer quickly found his target and gave him a clear fright as he forced him to delete the Snapchat post gave him a lecture about how you should never mock people in the gym.

He didn't think it was so funny in retrospect.

Filming someone in the gym and laughing at them on the internet is such a cowardly move, so it's good to see justice served so quickly in this example as often whoever does it gets away without any punishment. Bailey will now certainly think twice before he mocks someone on social media.

As much as he tried to act cool and play it off, he will have gotten a bit of a fright from that, and rightly so. Being a ridiculously talented young footballer does not give you the right to act like a tit.
