Yaya Toure hit a young girl in the face with a rasping shot that went wide of the post and into the crowd during Manchester City's draw with QPR.

The Manchester City midfielder shot beyond the post of Rob Green's goal with the ball ending up hitting the QPR supporting youngster squarely in the face.

Footage showed the five-year-old's head being rocked back and her arms being thrown into the air.

Despite the painful looking incident, it's been confirmed that Chloe Power was okay, and Toure took time out to speak to the her and sent her a signed shirt.

"Relieved to hear the girl my shot hit is ok," he tweeted. "I was very worried. Also want to thank the City fans who traveled to support us today.

 

"Just spoke to the lovely Chloe and her dad on the phone. So glad she is ok."

 

 

QPR also sent Chloe a signed shirt following the 2-2 draw at Loftus Road that saw the champions pick up a point only thanks to a late Sergio Aguero goal, his second for the visitors.
