Former Esteghal F.C. chairman Bahram Afsharzadeh was answering questions for a TV interview when he decided enough was enough.
In unbelievable footage the Iranian honcho mutters “This is for you” before offering the journalist’s nether regions a swift smack with his fist.
It is not known what the journalist said to anger Afsharzadeh.
The clip has racked up thousands of hits in only a few hours and viewers were amused by what they saw.
One LiveLeak user wrote: “That’s one painful goodbye!”
Another commented: “No more questions after that one!”
And a third added: “Wow. That is so harsh.”
