River Plate keeper Franco Armani wears Burger King crown after Super Cup win

River Plate mustered a 2-0 victory over eternal rivals Boca Juniors to secure their first ever Argentinian Super Cup title on Wednesday night.

After successfully preserving a clean sheet thanks to a number of impressive saves, River goalkeeper Franco Armani was crowned Man of the Match.

The award was sponsored by Burger King, meaning that the 31-year-old stopper was forced to undergo a coronation live on air after the full-time whistle.

Can't you just tell he's thrilled to have to don his little golden crown while facing the media?
