104388079Politics may indeed be a full-contact sport, but it's rare to see an actual display of knee-to-groin animus among political rivals.
Still, that's just what happened in Bolivia over this past weekend. On Sunday, Bolivian President Evo Morales was playing on a soccer squad opposite a team captained by one of his political foes, Luis Revilla, the mayor of La Paz. And in the thick of the action, Morales delivered what one Bolivian media outlet described as a knee to the "testicular zone" to a player on Revilla's team named Daniel Gustavo Cartagena. Morales was allegedly acting in retaliation for a hard foul Cartagena inflicted on him earlier in the match. Cartagena collapsed in agony after the kick, and the game ended in a 4-4 tie.
