Ghanaian footballer Mohammed Anas has become an internet sensation for his man-of-the-match acceptance speech.
Striker Anas bagged the award after scoring twice to secure his Free State Stars side a 2-2 draw with Ajax Cape Town in a South African Premier League match on Friday evening.
However, the 22-year-old striker could now be in trouble with his wife after scoring an own goal during a revealing post-match interview on live TV, which has been branded the best man-of-the-match speech of all time.
"Firstly I appreciate my fans," Anas began before adding: "[And] my wife and my girlfriend."
After realising his mistake, Anas attempted to make amends as the camera continued to roll.
"I'm so sorry, my wife!" he quickly added. "I love you so much from my heart."
"Thanks for supporting me there is more to come," he blundered on before the interview came to an end.
