Gale force winds and torrential rain maybe battering the UK today, but it seems we’re not the only place having to deal with the bad weather.
This incredible footage from a football match in Peru realised everyone’s worst nightmare after a lightening storm descended over the game.
At the start of the video, towards the top left of the picture, a puff of smoke can be seen where 21-year-old Joao Contreras was struck by a bolt of lightening before falling to the floor.

The incident happened as his side tried to overturn a 6-3 deficit from the first leg of their Copa Peru tie.
But football went out the window as medics and team-mates rushed to help the stricken player on the ground.
Remarkably Contreras survived the ordeal.
