I started my shift at 2pm and approximately 30 minutes later, I found a picture of Genoa striker Goran Pandev with a massive, accidental outline of a penis in his hair. The absolute scenes.

During Genoa's Serie A tie against Luigi Delneri's Udinese on Sunday afternoon, the picture of Pandev began to surface and within the space of a few minutes, this unfortunate, penis shaped hairstyle went viral.

I mean, I've seen some outrageous hairlines in my time, but this might just trump anything I've ever seen, ever.

The former Lazio, Inter Milan and Napoli striker failed to score in the first half against Udinese, and Genoa are currently 1-0 down.

But Genoa fans have all but forgotten about the scoreline to share this unfortunate image:

This isn't the first time a hairstyle has gone viral this year. Oh 2017, what have you done to us.

In February, English referee Mark Clattenburg announced that he would be making the move from the Premier League to Saudi Arabia, pocketing £500,000-a-year in the process.

However, when he took to the field to officiate an international friendly between Australia and Brazil in Melbourne earlier today, nobody was talking about Clattenburg's pay packet.

Instead, everyone was fixated on the disaster that occurred atop the former Premier League official's head.

His hair had well and truly gone for a wander:

Isn't social media a cruel world, but you can't help but love it's brilliance.
