Embarrassing moment when the South Australian Prime Minister punches a child directly in the face with a football
- SA Prime Minister Peter Malinauskas filmed the launch of football in the face of a child

- Child seems to recover quickly and the incident causes a lot of hilarity
- Comparisons made to Scott Morrison’s football accident with an eight-year-old
South Australian Prime Minister Peter Malinauskas has once again shown that politicians, sports and children can be a painful mix after he was caught on film clenching a football right in a child’s face.
Malinauskas amused himself with the screaming children of Colonel Light Gardens Primary School, in south-east Adelaide, by trading handballs with a red-haired boy on the playground.
But the drill went awry when the prime minister punched his intended target in the face, much to the amusement of his entourage and some of the children.
Unfortunately, he launched the ball a little high and a little hard for the boy to catch.
South Australian Prime Minister Peter Malinauskas continued the tradition of politicians inflicting accidents on children while playing sports by kicking a ball in the face of a four-year-old
The boy didn’t seem too busy though and seemed to smile as he quickly picked up the ball.
Mr. Malinauskas started to walk away, but then went back to make sure the child was okay and shook him gently through his read hair.
South Australia’s education department confirmed that the four-year-old child was unharmed.
Despite taking the blow, the child seems to recover quickly and immediately grabs the ball, forcing the Prime Minister to continue his visit
Noting the reaction of those around him, which was mostly laughter, the Prime Minister goes back to make sure the child is okay and ends the meeting by giving him a quick haircut
The Prime Minister was visiting the school to announce the government’s $100 per child grant on school materials and services, which will be paid to parents of primary and secondary students over the next two years.
The clip on Nine’s Instagram page drew comparisons to former Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s attempt to bowl eight-year-old Luca Fauvette while playing football for a Tasmanian junior club during the May election campaign.
Scott Morrison seemingly mistook football for rugby when he attacked eight-year-old Luca Fauvette during an election photo with the Tasmanian junior football club
Luca, who plays for the Devonport Strikers Soccer Club, later confirmed he was fine and even got a call from Mr Morrison that evening to check.
“Good as Scomo’s tackle,” one user wrote of Mr. Malinauskas’ handball.
“At least he didn’t fall for the kid,” wrote another.

It’s not just Australian politicians that kids should pay attention to when playing sports.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was filmed cleaning up 10-year-old Toki Sekiguchi while playing touch rugby in Japan in 2015.
Toki came out of the meeting with Mr Johnson’s shoulder and said he was fine.
