Gianluigi Donnarumma collected a bizarre yellow card in his latest outing for Paris Saint-Germain, with the Italian goalkeeper indulging in some strange time-wasting antics towards the end of a Classique clash with Marseille.
The Ligue 1 table-toppers were looking to defend a narrow 2-1 lead heading into the closing stages of an eventful encounter at Parc des Princes that had seen Neymar and Kylian Mbappe net either side of a leveller from Duje Caleta-Car.
Donnarumma, who had been at fault for Marseille’s goal, decided to take matters into his own hands in stoppage-time when he raced out of his area, kicked the ball against the advertising hoardings and then tried to dribble away with it down the touchline.

Prior to picking up a caution late on, Donnarumma had fluffed his lines when trying to help PSG defend an early lead given to them by Brazilian superstar Neymar.
The Euro 2020-winning goalkeeper attempted to come and collect a corner on the half-hour mark, but flapped at the ball and eventually saw it bundled into the net by Caleta-Car after an almighty scramble.
Mbappe ultimately had the final say in a keenly-fought contest as, after a lengthy stoppage for a VAR check, he converted a penalty deep into first-half stoppage-time.
PSG are now 15 points clear at the top of the Ligue 1 table with only six games left to take in, meaning that they are fast closing in on another coronation as champions of France.
