Football video: Italian referee gets knocked out by ball

Serie A-rrrrrrgh, my head!

Referee Massimiliano Saccani is probably nursing a sore head this morning. But the Italian official didn’t have one too many last night. His only mistake was getting in the way of a powerful Aleksandar Kolarov strike during yesterday’s 1-1 draw between Lazio and Torino.

The ball hit Saccani square on the temple, knocking him out. But after coming to his senses and being given the one over my medical staff, the brave official continued to referee the game.
