Miguel Herrera, head coach for Mexico's World Cup team, has become something of a cult hero after his colorful reaction to his team's 3-1 victory over Croatia went viral Monday.

Sweaty and red-faced, Herrera jumped up and down on the sidelines, flung himself on top of striker Raul Jimenez, and swept goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa off his feet in a bear hug.
