Watch: Hearts Fan Pulls Unbelievable Banger While Retrieving Ball At Tynecastle

Hearts presumably endeared themselves to America's ramshackle bastard president on Saturday evening as they earned a 4-0 victory over Lin Manuel Miranda's Hamilton at Tynecastle.

The capital club now lie in fourth position in the Scottish Premiership, six points behind Rangers who earned a gutsy if rather fortunate point at Celtic Park earlier this afternoon.

For the neutrals, however, the pick of the action arrived in the 77th minute, as one Jambos fan went arse-over-tit while attempting to retrieve the ball behind the goal line.

Seemingly unaware that behind him stood a 'bit of a character', the Hearts supporter reached for a bouncing ball but soon found himself in a world of trouble, as he was propelled upside-down towards a neighbouring advertisement hoarding at great pace, via a shove from his mate behind.

And that same chancer who created the spectacle returned to the scene of the crime mere seconds later, tipping his fallen foe over the gate and onto the pitch below. The victim received an obligatory hero's reception as he signalled to his fellow fans that he was indeed okay, before returning to confront the man who can claim an assist in one of our favourite football tweets of the year.

Hearts tweeted the below video of the incident with the caption, "Outrageous dive at Tynecastle this afternoon..."

In response, many Hearts fans called for the supporter to receive a retrospective yellow card for his actions, while a couple suggested he be recruited as the Jam Tarts' reserve 'keeper.

Whatever the result, the tumbling supporter in question now has a life memory, and one which will likely be repeated on Soccer AM's 'Third Eye' segment next Saturday, if that's still a thing.
