Football can be an odd sport, and we, here at Supporters Club, love to bring you extraordinary trivia. In today's Did You Know? instalment, we bring you the story of the South African referee who shot and killed the captain of a team during a match.
The fatal incident took place in 1999, during an amateur game between the Hartbeesfontein Wallabies and Try Agains. With the Wallabies 2-1 up, the referee, 34-year-old Lebogang Petrus Mokgethi, made a decision that led to an equaliser for Try Agains.
Wallabies captain Isaac Mkheta was so heated in his protest that he left the field and returned with a knife, at which point the referee came to acquire a 9mm from the stands which he used to shoot and kill Mkheta.
According to the BBC, there were about 600 people in attendance.
