During his side’s 4-3 win over Nautico in the Campeonato fifth round, Sport midfielder Marcelinho Paraiba had one of his pearly whites knocked out when he collided with an opponent.

Marcelinho understandably lost sight of the tooth as it pinged from his gums and has since offered a $1,000 (£635) reward to the stadium’s grounds staff for it’s safe return, seeing as though a replacement denture will cost him nearly four times as much.

That and he won’t get a shiny 50p from the tooth fairy.
