Gabriel Jesus breaks down in tears after receiving red card in Copa America final

foxsports: Heartbroken Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus was left distraught and in tears after being controversially sent off in the Copa America final against Peru at the Maracana.

The tournament hosts led 2-1 midway through the second half when Manchester City star Jesus was shown a second yellow card, having already contributed a goal and assist for Brazil.

The decision appeared harsh and Jesus was visibly fuming as he left the field — booting a water bottle among other sideline objects.

Cameras later showed him sitting on the steps inside the tunnel weeping heavily and still gesturing furiously towards the field.

Jesus found plenty of support on social media as many blasted the red card as harsh.

There was a happy ending for Jesus as he was able to join his teammates on the field at fulltime to celebrate a 3-1 victory and their first Copa America title since 2007.
