Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis scored the first goal of his side's 2-1 Europa League win against Sparta Prague and he celebrated by sucking on a pacifier. Gomis scored with a header off a corner kick in the 59th minute. He then pulled out a baby pacifier and jogged around with his teammates to celebrate his achievement (video here) before handing off his prop to a Lyon staffer on the touchline.

The pacifier celebration was a tribute to his newborn child, but let's review the facts: This is a grown man sucking a pacifier and wearing a 3D shirt. Clearly he is operating on another level.
