Swarm of bees halts Brazilian junior match

A swarm of bees called a halt to a junior match after they found their way onto the pitch half an hour into a game in Brazil.

Nautico were playing away to Ypiranga-PE in Santa Cruz do Capiperibe when referee Andrea Amorim was targeted by the insects who were attracted by her yellow shirt.

"At first, I thought it might be some kind of ploy by our opponents [to get the match suspended] since we were losing 1-0," Nautico coach Sergio China, told Globo.

"But when the referee dived to the ground I saw it was really serious. She was the most attacked, perhaps because of her shirt," he added. "We didn't get an explanation [for the bee attack] but we'd only have tried to find out why, if the game had been cancelled."

Amorin resumed the match and China's team hit back to win 3-1.
