Ivan Stuffer has given new meaning to the term "handball."
In an encounter dubbed "handball homophobia" by 101 Great Goals, the Italian player seemed to freak out when an opponent gave him a taunting kiss on the cheek. He pushed the offender to the ground and proceeded to drop his pants and grab his genitals while gesturing to the screaming crowd.
It seems Stuffer isn't the only one to receive an unwanted smooch on the handball court.
