Will Smith is already one of the world's most famous celebrities, but the Hollywood A-lister has garnered even more publicity after he took a contender for the worst penalty in history at the Champions Festival in London on Saturday.

Ahead of last night's all-German Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, the American actor and his son Jaden took part in the Ultimate Champions Match, which also featured a number of legends from the world of football.

Pitting himself against the likes of Luis Figo, Gianfranco Zola and Robert Pires, nobody expected the father and son duo to steal the show, but that's exactly what Smith Snr did, following his terrible spot-kick against Edwin van der Sar.

Of the TEN penalties that the pair took, they managed to convert only ONE - a shocking return for even the most inept of footballers.

Thankfully when the Champions League final proper kicked off, the two sides didn't need to decide the contest with a penalty shoot-out, after Arjen Robben's 87th minute strike secured Bayern Munich a 2-1 victory over their Bundesliga rivals, handing outgoing manager Jupp Heynckes the perfect parting gift to restore his side as the champions of Europe.
