Video: Birmingham vs Liverpool held up due to tampon on the pitch
The Women’s Super League match between Birmingham and Liverpool last weekend involved one of football’s more unusual delays.
The referee briefly halted play while a rogue tampon was removed from the pitch.
When the dust had settled after strong challenge between Birmingham’s Kirsty Linnett and Liverpool’s Corina Schroder, the stray hygiene product was spotted on the turf.
Birmingham’s physio was given the unenvious tasks of coming onto field of play to remove the item with her plastic bag-clad hand.
