Rafael Nadal demonstrated that he is pretty handy at football as well as tennis as he exacted revenge on Novak Djokovic in an exhibition match in Argentina.

The pair have not stopped since Djokovic beat Nadal to win the ATP World Tour Finals on November 11, as they have been in South America to play a series of exhibition matches to celebrate the retirements of Nicolas Massu of Chile and Argentina's David Nalbandian.

Djokovic got the better of Nadal in Chile last week, but it was Nadal who took the honours in Argentina as the Spaniard won 6-4 7-5.

And after their encounter, world No. 1 Nadal and the man behind him in the rankings Djokovic appeared at La Bombonera, the home stadium of Argentinian football side Boca Juniors, to play in a penalty shoot-out, with Nadal winning 3-1.
