Something about his mother/sister! Headbutt! Red card! Sent off! Zidane passed coach Raymond Domenech as he walked off but did not look at him -- then continued past the golden World Cup trophy and disappeared into the tunnel, his head still down.
Eight years ago, Zidane was red-carded for stomping on an opponent while playing Saudi Arabia. At this World Cup he collected two yellow cards and was suspended for France's third group match against Togo.
Five years ago, Zidane was also red-carded for butting Jochen Keintz in a Champions League match for Juventus against Hamburger SV.
Offering his support, the French President, Chirac said to Zizou: "Dear Zinedine, in such a hard and intense moment for you, I would like to express the whole nation's affection and admiration for you.
"You are a virtuoso, a genius of football and an exceptional human being. That is why France admires you."
Remember, Jacques Chirac believes in violence: during his president period France corvied out a plan of nuclear tests.
