Robin van Persie gave away his World Cup bronze medal moments after being handed the award by FIFA president Sepp Blatter, reports suggest.

The Netherlands captain converted a penalty when Brazil's Thiago Silva fouled Arjen Robben in the box after just three minutes of the third-place playoff in Brasilia last night.

Van Persie remained a threat throughout, but it was goals from Daley Blind and Georginio Wijnaldum that gave the Dutch a 3-0 victory over the hosts.

Despite a good performance from Louis van Gaal's men, celebrations were muted as they made their way up to collect their bronze medals, and Van Persie handed his prize straight over to a man dressed in an orange military uniform and a Netherlands bow-tie, according to The Independent.

Meanwhile, Brazil head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has refused to answer questions about whether or not he could be sacked following his nation's implosion at the World Cup.
