Joe Hart endured a miserable debut as Torino were beaten 2-1 at Atalanta.

Iago Falque had put Torino into a 54th-minute lead with a free-kick which sailed past the seemingly unsighted Atalanta goalkeeper Marco Sportiello.

But barely a minute later the England goalkeeper, who moved to Italy on transfer deadline day after losing his place at Manchester City, gifted Andrea Masiello an equaliser.

Hart came off his line to clear a corner only to misjudge the flight of the ball, overstretch and leave Masiello with a tap-in from six yards.

He had the chance to make amends eight minutes from full-time after Atalanta were awarded a penalty, but Franck Kessie sent him the wrong way from the spot.
