If you take your shirt off in football, you receive a yellow card. Simple as that... or is it?

Sol Bamba scored a last-minute winner to help Cardiff to their second win of the season on Saturday against Brighton.

Naturally the centre-half's emotions got the best of him and he took off his shirt as he ran towards the home fans.

We're pretty sure that the thought of a yellow card didn't even cross his mind as the goal went in.

However, Bamba somehow escaped without the booking!

Incredibly, referee Martin Atkinson managed to miss the celebrations as the Cardiff defender revealed after the match.

" The ref said to me 'did you take your shirt off?' I said 'no I didn't'"

Easy.
