Watch: The greatest dive of the year (so far)

You’ve got to hand it to Lucas Fonseca. The Brazilian player has some incredible agility. On Sunday when Bahia faced Flamengo, Fonseca over-reacted in spectacular fashion to Flamengo striker Paolo Guerrero semi-air punch following a high challenge from the Bahia man.

Fonseca managed to be knocked to the ground Street Fighter-style despite the fact that Guerrero’s hand was a good three feet away. Watch the magic below.

The best dive of the year by some considerable distance.
