Bolivian President Evo Morales Retaliates After Being Tackled In Fooball Match

Bolivian president Evo Morales took part in a football match on Sunday night to inaugurate a renovated stadium in La Paz against a team of political rivals.
A couple of minutes into the match, Daniel Gustavo Cartagena playing for Morales' opposition, scythed down the first ever indigenous president of Bolivia.
Morales didn't take too kindly to this and went up to Cartagena, kneeing him in what they like to call in wrestling terms as the 'bread basket'.
Following the match, reports in Bolivia suggested Cartagena was lucky to avoid being arrested while Morales has a cut on his leg which could keep him out for three or four days.
The incredible video of Evo Morales reaction is here:
