A macaw became the head coach for a few moments when it briefly stopped training after landing on a player’s head during the session.
The Brazil women’s national team were having a routine training session in Teresopolis, when the bird flew in and landed on defender Bruna Benites’ head.
The session was halted, as one of the coaching staff helped the bird on its way.
