Lazio won their fifth Italian Supercoppa with a shock 3-1 win over Juventus out in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Sunday evening. But they nearly didn't get the cup home!
The Toe Poke Daily is here every day to bring you all the weirdest stories, quirkiest viral content and top trolling that the internet has to offer, all in one place.
The Biancocelesti celebrated long and hard, even using the fourth official's board to put on a little song and light show in the dressing room.
However, the revelry hit a temporary stumbling block as the team prepared to return to Italy when midfielder Danilo Cataldi attempted to walk through the airport scanners while holding the trophy, setting off the alarms.

Cataldi scored in the victory, adding Lazio's third goal in injury time to wrap up the title.
Thankfully, he did eventually manage to navigate through security and take his seat on the plane alongside his large metallic holiday souvenir.
Spare a thought for Cristiano Ronaldo, though. The Juventus superstar clearly isn't happy about being a loser and couldn't get his medal off his neck quick enough!

Neville loses it over De Gea mistake
Gary Neville struggled to conceal his club allegiances while watching Manchester United fall behind against Watford on Sunday afternoon.
The pundit was watching the game on a television screen from inside the Tottenham Stadium (where he was due to cover the upcoming Tottenham-Chelsea game for Sky Sports) just as David De Gea let a mis-hit Ismaila Sarr shot squirm through his grasp.
This all unfolded while Spurs boss Jose Mourinho was giving a prematch interview to Sky, which was interrupted by Neville's gobsmacked gasps of disbelief.
Jokingly asked what he thought about Neville's unprofessionalism, Mourinho quipped: "I think Gary cannot hide his United connections."
United went onto lose 2-0 at Vicarage Road, leaving them 24 points behind Liverpool at the top of the Premier League heading into Christmas, having played a game more.
Toe Poke's thoughts are with Neville at this difficult time.
