Sivasspor were held to a 1-1 draw against Kayserispor in the Central Anatolian Derby on Sunday.
Robinho was the talk of the town afterwards – for the right reasons this time.
The Brazil forward scored a stunning free-kick for Sivasspor, his first goal since joining the club in a highly controversial move over the January window.

Robinho was sentenced to nine years in prison for taking part in the gang rape of a woman in Milan in 2013 according to the BBC.
An Italian court ruled the 33-year-old and five other Brazilians assaulted the Albanian woman, who was 22, after plying her with alcohol in a nightclub.
The 30-year-old pleaded not guilty and the sentence will be put on hold until the appeals process is completed – which could take over three-years.
