At one point in this video, Diego Costa is chased by a bunch of men in fatsuits. There's a good chance this is all just a fever dream. But then Diego knocks you down, and you realize this is all very real.
Here's Diego Costa barging a man to the floor during a friendly five-a-side game. pic.twitter.com/bi7fAcUJje— Oliver Todd (@oliver_todd) July 4, 2015
That's our Diego!
Costa, Shevchenko (apparently), and the man they call Falcão (the OTHER Falcão) are all participating in the 32nd edition of the Al-Roudan Tournament. The tournament that takes place during the holy month of Ramadan and involves upwards of 80 teams. It's unclear how or why Costa is there — there's a good chance he's only taking part in a few exhibition friendlies. Others, like the aforementioned Falcão, are actually getting paid by their teams.

In any case, Diego's team (called Chelsea; bonus points for figuring out where Costa got his shirt) won their first match 7:0. Diego scored 5 goals.
