Playacting? Or did Real Madrid’s Pepe headbutt Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas [Vine & best tweets]
It was an exciting first half in El Clasico, with Real Madrid and Barcelona going in at 2-2.
Lionel Messi equalised just before half-time and Pepe and Cesc Fabregas were booked in the aftermath.
The pair both went down, pretending to have been headbutted but it didn’t look like there was much in it.
Watch an Instagram video and a Vine of the incident here:
Amazing. Marcelo pushes Pepe's head into Fabregas, Pepe acts the victim. He really is a super person.

Embarrassing nonsense from Pepe & Fabregas. Shameless. There are TV cameras, chaps.

I think Pepe just flopped after headbutting Fabregas. That’s… impressive?

Pepe and Fabregas booked for a Pardew, with added rolling around.
