The Africa Cup of Nations is known to have given rise to some of the most brilliant penalty shootouts in football history, and the tournament certainly didn't disappoint in its latest edition.
Back in 2012, Ivory Coast star Gervinho found himself on the wrong side of the drama when he missed his sudden death spot-kick in the final against Zambia, who secured the title just moments later.
This time around, Elephants boss Herve Renard made sure the former Arsenal man didn't have to sweat it, substituting him in the last minute of extra time with Ghana. But poor Gervinho stressed nonetheless, refusing to watch as the anxiety was just too much to bear.
The worrisome forward emerged a champion of Africa after his teammates did the business in an epic shootout, yet he wouldn't escape the clutches of keen photoshoppers in the aftermath.
Watch as Gervinho witnesses the maiden moon landing, advises President Obama and attends the Yalta Conference in superimposed style after his antics in the AFCON final.
