Hardy fans who battled through Arctic conditions to watch a Belgian league match at the weekend were rewarded handsomely for their efforts as they witnessed one of the most incredible goals of the season.

Half an hour into the match against Genk, Lierse striker Wesley Sonck picked up a cross from Joeri Dequevy with his back to goal - then stunned the crowd as he flipped the ball up before smashing it into the top corner with an outlandish bicycle kick.

A second-half penalty from Genk's Elianiv Barda ensured the match would end in a draw - but the home fans will still have gone home with a warm feeling inside after being first-hand witnesses to a spectacular strike that has already become an internet sensation.
