GIF: Newcastle's Sissoko floors ref Jones with slap

It was a scene reminiscent of that glorious September afternoon in 1998 when Paolo Di Canio absolutely flattened referee Paul Alcock with the flimsiest of pushes.

Saturday, we were treated to a classic instance of comical ref abuse at St James' Park when Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko accidentally caught Mike Jones with a slap across the face.

The official plummeted to the ground as if he'd been hit by a cross-channel ferry...

To be fair, Sissoko's clout in the Magpies' 1-1 draw with Southampton was stiff enough to draw a few drops of blood from the official's nose, but still, we can't help but feel a yellow for simulation was in order.
