Newsrooms everywhere have been showing footage and discussing the chaos caused by the thought to be meteorite.
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.
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...
