Hassan Kajoke, who plays for Malawian football club Nyasa Big Bullets has reportedly received a live chicken from a fan after scoring a brace against Karonga United on Sunday.
According to reports, the football match took place in Malawi.
Hajoke, who scored a brace in the 5-0 thrashing, looked in a state of confusion as the fan handed him the animal from a cardboard box inscribed ‘Kajoke BB’.
The fan also painted red stripes on the chicken to signify the traditional colours of the Super League side.

This isn’t the only example of bizarre Man of the Match awards going viral.
In South Africa, a Mamelodi Sundowns forward received 5GB of mobile data for his performance.
While in Zimbabwe, crates of beer have been handed to MOTM winners.
In terms of Man of the Match awards, Lionel Messi is the undisputed king.
He has won an incredible 225 MOTM trophies since the 2010/11 season, which is 100 more than second-place Cristiano Ronaldo.
The fact that there are only two players to have compiled more than a hundred awards since the 2010/11 campaign is a testament to his genius.
