It was recently revealed by a Zenit spokesman that the 'meteorite'  was actually a football from a training session that had been hit by the powerhouse Hulk.

Hulk had scored a scorcher against Liverpool the night before and was reportedly trying to recreate the goal in training when he blasted the ball not only out of the stadium, but also out of the Earth's orbit.

When the ball did eventually return to Earth, it triggered absolute bedlam in Chelyabinsk, injuring over 500 people and resulting in collateral damage to buildings.

Hulk has recently released a statement saying that he is 'sorry' about the incident and that he 'doesn't know his own strength sometimes'.

Of course you don't...
