Video: Belgian footballer hurls duck off pitch!
You will find no journalistic sensationalism in that headline. Zulte Waregem’s Habib Habibou had seen quite enough of a duck which had landed on the pitch and was holding up his side’s match against Lokeren.
He stalked the web-footed pitch invader, grabbed him and chucked him over the advertising hoardings. And in case this seems like the most sensible way of dealing with the situation, he chose an overarm throwing action and aimed the duck at the floor.
At least the duck walked away from incident. He appears slightly distressed but for the most part it was water off… well, you know.
