A new Internet hit this week has been Hē Shuǐ Gē (Drink Water Bro), made famous after conceding a goal as he took a drinks break.

In a Super League match between Chongqing Lifan and Liaoning Hongyuan on May 24, when the Liaoning team fired a free-kick, Sui Weijie stood oblivious on the far post, having a gulp of water – just like a member in the audience.
Liaoning midfielder Ding Haifeng took the set-piece quickly - and darted past the bemused defenders and slotted the ball into the open net.
The goalkeeper did not appear to believe what had happened at first.
Even Chen Yang, the coach of the Liaoning team, who was also taking a drinks break, was taken by surprise. He only briefly shook hands with the manager to celebrate the goal.
Before the free-kick, the Chongqing team were just seven minutes away from a vital 1-0 win.
Sadly there was no second chance.
On May 26, the Chongqing team announced that Sui is fined 50,000 yuan, but the goalkeeper will not be suspended.
Insiders say the prize for the winner was supposed to be one million yuan, and was reduced to 400,000 yuan in the case of an equal score.
1 gulp of water = 650,000 yuan
Sui appologized: “I made a fatal mistake and let go the precious three points. I won’t repeat the mistake and will never lose concentration.”
The coach of the Chongqing team said he will not replace Sui.
