Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus had a pitch-side meltdown after being shown a red card in the second-half of his nation's Copa America final victory over Peru.
The Selecao led 2-1 when the 22-year-old collided with opposition defender Carlos Zambrano as the pair leapt for a throw-in, and Chilean referee Roberto Tobar deemed the challenge worthy of a second yellow card. The forward proceeded to throw a tantrum as he walked off the field, before continuing his animated protests in the tunnel.

Jesus grabbed an assist for Brazil's opener, teeing up unmarked winger Everton with a pinpoint cross to the back stick, the latter duly sending a volley beyond Pedro Gallese.
The Manchester City man's night got even better on the stroke of half-time as he placed a fine finish into the near post, instantly restoring his team's lead after Paolo Guerrero had levelled matters with a penalty.
However, Jesus was brought crashing down to Earth on 70-minutes when he mistimed a jump and clattered into the back of the blindsided Zambrano.
