After dropping to his knees during Real Madrid's nervy penalty shootout against Bayern Munich, Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho made a quick exit down the tunnel when Bastian Schweinsteiger made the winning shot to send Bayern to the Champions League final. Though Mourinho shook hands and shared a chuckle with Bayern manager Jupp Heynckes just before the dreaded shootout began, to some viewers it appeared Mourinho was throwing one of his tantrums in defeat.

But when Heynckes spoke to the press later on, he made a point to highlight the private gesture Mourinho made to his adversaries. From the AP:

Heynckes said Madrid coach Jose Mourinho "came to the dressing room to congratulate my players and coaching staff after the game. It was very noble."

And then he dressed up as Borussia Dortmund's bee mascot and urinated on their bus. It was very noble.
