Smell of injustice: Swedish player cops farting red

A Swedish footballer has been sent off after a referee accused him of “deliberate provocation” and “unsportsmanlike behaviour” for farting during a match.

Adam Lindin Ljungkvist, who plays for Pershagens SK, was taking part in a game against Jarna SK’s reserve team in the seventh division of Swedish football.

However, the left-back was shown a second yellow card in the 93rd minute after letting off an audible fart close to the referee.

“I had a bad stomach, so I simply let go,” the 25-year-old told Lanstidningen Sodertalje. “Then I received two yellow cards and then red. Yes, I was shocked, it’s the strangest thing I have ever experienced in football.

“I asked the referee, ‘What, am I not allowed to break wind a little?’ ‘No,’ he replied… I don’t get it but maybe he thought I farted in my hand and threw the fart at him. But I did not.”

He added: “To provoke anyone with a fart is not particularly smart or normal. It’s nonsense – I just broke wind and got a red card. 

“I spoke to the referee afterwards, I was annoyed, but there were no bad words. I just said he was a buffoon.

“I think it was a crappy judgment. Now I just laugh about it. There is no one else who has heard of this before, I’ve never heard of anyone who has been sent off for farting.”

Ljungkvist and Co. lost the clash 5-2.
