Hoffenheim captain Andreas Beck accidentally knocked a cameraman out cold after crashing into him during his side's Bundesliga match with Mainz 05 at the weekend.

The unsuspecting operator was taken to hospital with concussion after being hit head-on by the onrushing defender, who appeared to slip on the hoardings around the outside of the pitch.

After successfully keeping the ball in play as he hurtled towards the touchline, Beck's momentum carried him out of the game and straight into a collision with the cameraman.

Thankfully, neither party was seriously injured, and the 27-year-old recovered to play 87 minutes of the match, before being substituted by Markus Gisdol right at the death.
