AC Milan star Philippe Mexes has one job and that is to stop goals going in. But from time to time he can break away from his everyday duties to leave the opposition stunned.

That is exactly what he did against his team's fiercest rivals Inter Milan earlier today, connecting with a Giacomo Bonaventura corner with his right foot to score what could quite possibly be the best volley in football history.

Usually inside the box for corners, Inter's defenders were puzzled to see the Frenchman lingering outside the box and would have surely counted themselves lucky when Bonaventura fired the ball over everyone's head.
