PAOK player celebrates goal with his son after he was bullied in school

Fernando Varela

PAOK beat Larissa 3-0 on Monday evening.

PAOK’s second goal was scored by former Steaua Bucharest defender, Fernando Varela.

The 30 year old headed home from Dimitros Pelkas’ corner in the 40th minute of the match. He then proceeded to run off the pitch and celebrate with his son who had been suffering from bullying at school.

Why was he bullied?

Varela’s son was taunted by his class mates due to his father’s own goal which came in a match last season against Olympiacos.

Varela had actually scored his first goal for PAOK earlier in the match but scored a disastrous own goal in the 25th minute. Olympiacos went on to win the game 2-1 with Crystal Palace’s Luka Milivojevic scoring a late late winner deep into added time.

The tweet above reads:

PAOK defender Fernando Varela, forgave himself by celebrating his goal with his son.

Varela’s son was ill-treated by his father because his father scored his own goal in the Olympiacos match at the beginning of the season.

Best celebration ever?

Varela’s celebration surely ranks up there with the best celebrations of all time.

Last season, Lionel Messi celebrated with a nice gesture (pictured below). The Argentinian was making a symbol to raise awareness for children suffering with cancer.

Robbie Keane would always celebrate with a cartwheel and a roley poley whenever he scored during the earlier stages of his career.

Cristiano Ronaldo has made his ‘SIIIIIII’ celebration a trademark.

Gareth Bale also has his own trademark celebration.

Michael Phelps, Wife Nicole and Son Boomer Celebrate Their Upcoming Addition at Baby Shower

Michael Phelps and wife Nicole are anxiously waiting for their “baby shark.”

The swimmer, 32, celebrated the upcoming arrival of the couple’s second child with a baby shower on Sunday. He shared a photo holding 21-month-old son Boomer Robert and standing next to Nicole, whose growing belly was on display in a fitted green dress and sleeveless beige cover-up.

“Thanks to those who came to celebrate today!!” Phelps captioned the family photo, adding the hashtag #babyshark, which guests used to share their snaps. (Perhaps it’s a reference to the 28-time Olympic medalist racing a shark as part of Discovery Channel Shark Week?)

Nicole, also 32, posted a sweet shot of her husband with his hand on her bump. “Such an amazing day celebrating our #babyshark!!” she wrote. “More photos to come … we are so thankful for everyone who was able to be with us and everyone who was with us in spirit.”

In August, the couple announced in matching social media posts that they are expecting again.

“Number 2 on the way!!!! So excited!! Wonder if it’s a boy or a girl??” Phelps wrote alongside a photo of Boomer clutching a pregnancy test while snuggled up in his mom’s arms.

Phelps and the former Miss California USA welcomed Boomer in May 2016. They wed later that year – twice! First, the pair tied the knot in June, and then again in late October during a larger event in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

In another interview, the athlete further told PEOPLE of more children, “We are so fortunate to have a healthy and happy baby and hopefully more coming soon, but we don’t know when.”

“We’re going through life every day happy and blessed with what we have. But I hope to have more kids in the future,” Phelps explained.

Just one week ago, the “What About Us” singer relied on her son to help her get into the Super Bowl spirit as she performed “The Star Spangled Banner” despite being sick with the flu.

“Wait, Eagles are gonna win by HOW MUCH?!?!” Pink captioned the shot that showed the singer holding a football while making a silly face at her young son, who was adorably decked out in an Eagles sweatsuit.

The 38-year-old singer had previously revealed that her children were to blame for her flu diagnosis.

“I’ve been waiting to sing this song since 1991 when I saw my idol, Whitney Houston, own this song. And now, my chance has finally come. And it just so happens that this chance comes when I have two small Petri dish kids who literally cough INTO MY MOUTH and rub their snot on my cheek. You can’t write this stuff I swear!” she wrote on social media at the time.

Still, Pink made it clear she wasn’t holding a grudge against her adorable, albeit germ-ridden offsprings.

“As far as the gremlins that got me into this mess, you can cough at me for the rest of your lives,” she said. “If it’s a contest, babies, you win. #spreadthelove #spreadthegerms #pleasegivememyvoiceback #ificansingimgonnakillit.”

Following her performance, Corey Hart quickly penned a heartfelt message to his wife, praising her for her strength and talent.

I am beyond proud of this woman. The roller coaster that she went through this last week with getting sick and losing her voice would have broke any ordinary person,” the former freestyle motocross competitor wrote alongside a picture of his wife and their daughter.

Continuing, he added, “Oh and sang live by the way. She is the hardest working in show business and I couldn’t be more proud of her.”

“What happens inside you, you actually transform and your heart bursts,” continued the proud mom. “I thought I was gonna die, in the best way … that much love comes out of you. So I would re-do and relive that moment over and over if I could.”

Mom Spends 7 Years Taking Down Drug Ring That Killed Her Son: 'There's Nothing That Could Be Worse'

When Karen Dobner’s 19-year-old son died in 2011 from smoking a form of synthetic marijuana, she vowed to do everything in her power to stop everyone who contributed to his death — from the drug ring to the store owner who sold the deadly drugs to him.

After seven long years, the suburban mother finally got her wish.

On Jan. 26, Ruby Mohsin, the store Illinois owner who sold Max Dobner a product called iAroma — a type of synthetic marijuana made of mushroom leaves and sprayed with chemicals — was sentenced to two years in federal prison, CBS2 Chicago reports.

“I always felt like he was by my side helping me,” Dobner told CBS2 Chicago about her son. (Attempts to reach Dobner were not immediately successful.)

In June 2011, Max bought the synthetic marijuana, sold as “potpourri,” from Mohsin’s store, The Cigar Box, in a mall in Aurora, just outside of Chicago, and smoked it with a friend, the Chicago Tribune reports. After he started having hallucinations and a panic attack, he accidentally killed himself on June 4, 2011, when he drove his car at 100 mph and crashed into a house in Aurora after flying 80 feet in the air, CBS News reports.

His car hit the house so hard that the engine ended up in another room, the Chicago Tribune reports. Investigators could find no evidence that the teen tried to hit the brakes, according to the Tribune.

In Feb. 2017, Mohsin pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute the synthetic drug, the Tribune reports. She faced a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a fine of $250,000. (Her attorney did not immediately return calls for comment.)

When the store owner spoke to Max and his friend, she allegedly said to them, ” ‘Would you like to try my new specials? I have new flavors,’” Dobner told CBS2 Chicago. “I don’t know what kind of mother sells drugs in the mall to kids.”

Dobner credits CBS2 Chicago with helping her in her quest for justice. After going undercover, the station’s investigative team revealed that months after the teen died, Moshin was still selling the drug, CBS2 Chicago reports.

Police also went undercover and bought the product from her, the outlet reports.

“She continued to sell, and that’s why she’s going to prison,” Dobner said.

Dobner also worked with attorney Shawn Collins, who sued others involved in the manufacturing, distribution and sale of the drug to her son.

“Through our investigation, we learned that there was literally a nationwide distribution network — North Carolina, Iowa, Texas, Louisiana,” Collins told CBS2 Chicago.

Besides Mohsin, three others connected to Max’s death have been indicted, the outlet reports.

In 2017, Mohammed Khan, who worked at the store, and Suliman Tanus, who bought the drugs from Kevin Seydel, a wholesaler in Iowa, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute synthetic drugs, the Tribune reports. They have not yet been sentenced.

Seydel pleaded guilty in December 2016 to intentionally distributing drugs in Illinois, North Carolina and Louisiana. He was sentenced in June to four years in prison followed by two years of supervised release and was fined $250,000, the Tribune reports.

Besides seeking justice for her son, Dobner says her other goal is to warn people about the dangers of synthetic marijuana, which can be 800 times stronger than real marijuana and especially dangerous because consumers don’t know what ingredients are used, CBS2 Chicago reports.

She doesn’t want anyone else to die and doesn’t want other parents to endure the pain she has, she says.

In a Feb. 2012 blog post, Dobner wrote, “On June 14, 2011 I got the call that all mothers fear. It was a beautiful day and I was at my friend’s house when my cell phone rang. A police officer told me that Max had a car accident and he had died. My whole world changed in that moment.

“Nothing about my life is the same. There’s nothing that could be worse.”

Calls to attorneys for Khan, Tanus and Seydel, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago and Collins were not immediately returned.
