The normally quiet world of water polo was shaken up by the events at the Vojvodina – Zvezda match. The main ref was shoved into the pool by an aggravated home fan.

The referee had earier made two decissions in favor of Zvezda, the away team, who were able to pick up a 7:7 draw.

This was the point in which a man attacked the ref, throwing him into the water. The obvious severity of the incident was cause for suspending the match.

Pay close attention to the bottom part of your screen. The fact the referee ended up in a pool, instead of a hard court doesn’t change the fact this was an unprecedented act of plain stupidity.

The incident may cause national tensions, considering the ref is in fact Croatian.
