Children can find it tough to take a ball from the feet of an adult at the best of times, but when it’s a professional footballer things really get out of hand.

That’s exactly the situation a poor young boy ended up in with Borussia Dortmund and Japan midfielder Shinji Kagawa – and it was always going to end in tears.

Whether the 28-year-old did feel sorry for the young boy isn’t clear from the video, which was posted to Kagawa’s Twitter page with crying and thumbs up emojis.
