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.

A Reddit user made this smart (and hilarious) observation about the photograph:

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:

Another renaissance painting is this picture of Lampard after he scored following the death of his mum.
