During the Zenit St Petersburg and Shakhtar Donetsk friendly, Viktor Fayzulin of Zenit was trying to dribble around a defender. As he was making his move the referee unfortunately slipped on the pitch and accidentally took out the attacker. A great, but late slide tackle.

Who gives the yellow card in this instance?

Luckily this happened during a friendly. Could you imagine the hissy fit Cristiano Ronaldo would have thrown say if this happened next month in a Champions League match against Manchester United.
