Manzil Lajura placed the photo of the brawl within a Fibonacci spiral and it went viral. Many tweeters commented on how unusual it was that a photographer captured the violent moment using beautiful aesthetics reminiscent of Italian paintings.

The Guardian, who described the photo as "accidental Renaissance", asked readers to share other similar photographs that they've noticed. Dan Sully shared this image of Frank Lampard:
