South African pitch invader smacks referee with a vuvuzela
Throughout the 2010 World Cup in South Africa there were calls to ban the vuvuzela, primarily because of the ear drum-persecuting drone that they insist upon. Now there’s an even more pressing reason to cork the plastic horns – one has been used to assault a match official!
The sour note happened in the first half of a South African top-tier game between Kaizer Chiefs and Golden Arrows. After Chiefs midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane received a controversial sending off, an enraged home fan evaded security, swung the vuvuzela like a mighty malice and thwacked the rather composed referee on the back.
It’s surely not the first time Kaizer Chiefs and shameful use of musical instruments has been used in the same sentence.
The intruder was later arrested and the official was unhurt by the incident. He proceeded to marshal the rest of the game which ended 0-0; a result that keeps Kaizer Chiefs top of the league by seven points with six games to play.
