Referee Books Dying Footballer For Diving

A football referee gave a yellow card to a player for diving – only to find moments later he had actually collapsed and died.

The referee had warned the teams before the match that he would not tolerate any diving or over-the-top behaviour.
After seeing 32-year-old Mr Tunjic lying on the ground, he marched across the pitch to wave a yellow card at him.
But it was not until other players gathered around him that they realised he was not faking it.
The referee immediately saw that he had made a mistake and called for medics.
Mr Tunjic was taken to hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.
Doctors said he had died on the pitch from a massive heart attack.
“Doctors tried to help him, but there was nothing they could do,” a team spokesman said of the player, who had no previous medical problems.
“He just fell dead on the spot.”
