Flamengo defender Gustavo Henrique was reduced to tears during last Sunday's game against Corinthians by a gruesome intimate injury after an opposition player accidentally stamped on his testicles.

The Brazilian suffered the misfortune during a clash in the first-half, with the player ultimately bleeding through his shorts.

Henrique attempted to play on, swapping his bloodied shorts for a new pair.

However, the pain proved too much for Henrique, who left the field just before half-time in tears of agony, with his second pair of shorts also covered in blood.

The club said in a statement that the 27-year-old was treated in the dressing room by the club's medical team before being prescribed a course of antibiotics by a urologist and told to rest up.

A day after the injury, Henrique took to Twitter to update fans on his condition.

"Good morning nation! Stopping by to thank all the messages of support and to say that I am in recovery, looking to return as soon as possible to help the Mengao!" he said. "Thank you very much to all."

Flamengo won 5-1 on the day courtesy of goals from Everton Ribeiro, Vitinho, Natan, Bruno Henrique, and Diego.

Gustavo Henrique did not feature in Flamengo's next match against Junior FC, but returned to the starting line-up for its 2-2 draw with Internacional on Sunday October 25.
