LUIS SUAREZ produced a hilarious faceplant after one of his infamous dives before smashing a stunning 35-yard free-kick into the goal.
The former Liverpool striker has been hailed "timeless" after turning back the clocks in Gremio's 3-2 defeat to Internacional on Sunday.
Suarez, 36, proved his eye for the spectacular finish has not gone anywhere.
But neither has the Uruguayan's obsession with bending the rules.
During the Brazilian clash, Suarez challenged for the ball with one of the Internacional defenders and ended up being swept off the floor.
However, there was no contact between the players, despite Suarez launching himself the floor.

The Uruguay international is regarded as one of the best strikers of his generation.
He spent four seasons at Liverpool, scoring 82 goals in 133 appearances.
He then left the Premier League for La Liga giants Barcelona where he scored a mammoth 198 goals in 283 appearances.
Suarez also enjoyed short spells at Atletico Madrid and boyhood club Nacional before moving to the Brazillian giants in January.
However, Suarez will call it quits on his career at the end of the year after agreeing to end his contract early with the club.
Earlier this year the forward revealed he is in "constant pain" amid his battle with injuries which had led to his decision to bring his time at the club to an end.
