Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo was sensationally ejected from their game against the Washington Wizards for a headbutt on Moritz Wagner. 

Antetokounmpo, the NBA's reigning Most Valuable Player (MVP), channeled his inner Zinedine Zidane after he was left bemused for not getting a foul call he felt he had earned from the referee following a collision with Wagner. 

A foul against 'Greek Freak' Antetokounmpo was called with around eight minutes remaining in the first half and while he is normally mild-mannered, both players exchanged words and then he lost his cool and took it out by headbutting Wagner.
