Guy Gets Thrown out of Soccer Game for Farting

This story stinks

Unsportsmanlike behaviour can be anything from reckless tackles, to swearing at the referee, to farting. Yup, farting.

According to, Adam Lindin Ljungkvist was given a red card after farting loud enough for the referee to hear.

“I needed to fart, I had a bad stomach,” he told Lanstidningen Sodertalje. “So I just farted. Then I received a yellow card and then a red.”

The referee who handed out the punishment says he believed the fart was a provocation against another player.
