Argentine reporter Manuel Sanchez lands in hospital after he attempts to copy Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo bicycle kick.

Sanchez, who works for Argentine news outlet Canal Doce fell awkwardly during his attempt and appeared to have ensured his safety by laying down a crash mat to cushion his fall, but the only use it ends up serving was as a bed to later receive treatment.

According to reports the embarrassed journalist ended up in the hospital for his troubles and will presumably never ever try to copy the Ballon d'Or winner's antics again.

Ronaldo's stunning bicycle kick against Juventus meant he became the first player to score in 10 consecutive UEFA Champions League games and remains the competition's all-time top goal scorer with 119 goals. 

Real Madrid host Juventus in the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday night with Los Blancos take a 3-0 victory in Turin last week as Ronaldo hopes to add to his record.
