Is refusing to shake hands ever acceptable?
This is the moment when South Africa coach Carlos Alberto Parreira proffered his hand for his opposite number Raymond Domenech to shake.
Domenech not only refused the handshake, but later refused to answer questions about why he refused.
Parreira later told reporters it was put down to comments he'd made about the Henry handball controversy which allowed France to qualify in the first place.
Bloggers aren't being kind to Domenech, with the handshake for some seemingly getting close to eclipsing the team's poor form, player mutiny, single goal and humiliating exit.
Hot Steaming Gonzo sums it up thus:
It's not about winning or losing; it's about the chance to be apart of a great event. South Africa is the host and they lost; if anything, you would expect Parreira to be more upset than Domenech.Instead, the French exit the tournament in the same way as they entered: like they didn't belong there in the first place.
