Tasked with getting a pitch invader off the field of play during a match between Maccabi Haifa and Beitar Jerusalem, this Israeli policeman might have opted for his truncheon, CS spray or any other number of options to detain the intruder. But he decided ‘when in Rome…’ and opted for the trusty two-footed tackle instead.

He successfully stops the pitch invader, but is definitely in line for a red card himself. As any number of pundits would tell the officer we’re going to dub PC Lee Cattermole, he’s on the halfway line, there’s no danger, why make a challenge like that?
