The youngster was hoisted high in the air in an attempt to grab hold of Rozee’s set shot as it sailed through the goals during the fourth quarter of Port’s 54-point win over West Coast Eagles at Adelaide Oval on Sunday.

But his hands failed him and he copped the ball flush in the face.

It is understood the five-year-old suffered no injuries, his older brother telling ABC Australia he was fine but a little embarrassed.
