Olympic Scrotum Punching

French Bball Player

Goes NUTS on Spain

8/8/2012 10:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Talk about an Olympic low blow ... some dude on the French basketball team just delivered a closed-fist scrotum punch to a Spanish player ... sending the guy crumbling to the floor in agonizing pain.

The ball-punisher is France's Nic Batum ... who obliterated Juan Carlos Navarro's bean bag in the 4th quarter of their quarterfinal matchup ... in an effort to intentionally foul the guy.  Batum was NOT ejected from the game.

Seems testicle attacks are all the rage at the Olympics this year -- just yesterday, Team USA member Carmelo Anthony took a fist to the no-no zone from a guy on the Argentina squad.

2:00 PM PT -- Batum has apologized for gonad battery ... tweeting, "I want to apologize for my stupid act at the end, I showed a bad image of France and myself, Congrats to team Spain." For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!
