Ivan Banovic, a Croatian soccer goalie, took a break from protecting his goal to protect a cat who had wandered onto the field at the beginning of a game, reports NPR. After Banovic quickly carried the curious cat to a safe spot under the scoreboard, a referee called a penalty on the goalkeeper for the violation of leaving the field mid-game.

The referee who made the decision was immediately booed, and BBC Sport reports that the crowd — including the opposing team’s fans — spent the remainder of the game applauding the penalized goalie for his kindness.

I think the guy really let a lot of people down today. First of all his team. What if a goal had scored? Second of all the crowd. What is more of a spectacle than seeing a cute kitten mistaken for a ball and punted 50 yards? And third of all If such a kick had happened it would have been front page news here. Sadly, all I can give you is crappy vids like this one below.
