Scott Morrison has been caught in a bit of an awkward gaffe while on the election campaign trail.
The Prime Minister is in Tasmania and was getting a nice little photo op of him playing soccer with some kids.
However, there's a saying in television that you never work with children or animals because you never know what can happen.
Sadly that's been reinforced after vision appeared on social media showing Scott Morrison accidentally decking a small kid on the field.
9News cameras captured the moment the Prime Minister raced over to the side of the field to get to the ball.
However, he wasn't keeping his eyes on what was around him and he smacked into a kid.
The pair went tumbling to the ground and Mr Morrison checked to see if he was okay.
A person who looked like a coach also raced over to help the PM and the kid get back on their feet.
9News reporter Eliza Edwards has posted a video of the moment on Twitter and people cannot believe their eyes.

As people have pointed out, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson did the same thing when he was playing rugby with some lads.
The then Mayor of London absolutely decked a 10-year-old boy during the game.
The moment happened back in 2015 when he was on the final day of his three-day trade mission to Japan.
He took possession of the ball and raced towards the try line and charged forward through the children.
Johnson quickly apologised to the child.
He later told reporters: “We have just played a game of street rugby with a bunch of kids and I accidentally flattened a 10-year-old, on TV unfortunately.
"But, he bounced back, he put it behind him, the smile returned rapidly to his face.
“That is my theme tonight … the possibility that confidence can suddenly and unexpectedly return.”
