Atalanta forward Alejandro ‘Papu’ Gomez put in a captain’s shift for Sunday’s trip to Chievo with the Argentinian scoring twice in a 4-1 trouncing.

After both goals, Papu kissed his captain’s armband which, upon closer inspection, was emblazoned with various characters from Disney’s ‘Frozen’.

Indeed, it turns out that Gomez was also celebrating the birthday of his young daughter Anni, who turned two that very day…

How lovely, though we can’t help but feel sorry for Papu’s son, Bautista, who received an altogether different gift from his dad during a recent family holiday…

Brutal, but the kid’s got to learn at some point – beach football ain’t no bed of roses!
