Ajaccio forward Gadji Tallo was so convincing with his latest dive that his manager actually substituted him.

The 20-year-old went down under a seemingly innocuous challenge from an opponent in a Coupe de la Ligue tie against Bastia.

In the process of getting up, he was hit by the ball and went down like the Hindenburg.

After writhing around in apparent agony, Tallo was stretchered off and Bastia manager Fabrizio Ravanelli - former Middlesborough striker - decided that Tallo's game was up and subbed him off.

When the Ivorian hears his number called on the tannoy he immediately jumps to his feet and throws a tantrum.

Despite walking around the whole pitch towards the dugout, his anger doesn't diminish and he confront Ravanelli who offers an explanation.

So take note Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez. A dive may win your team a free-kick but don't be too convincing or it's an early bath.
