Fan throws explosive at player getting treatment during match in Cyprus

An Anorthosis player was receiving treatment from medical staff during a match against Omonia Nicosia in Cyprus on Sunday when a fan apparently decided that the delay wasn't up to his standards of entertainment, so he threw an explosive directly at the downed player. The blast cleared the scene as players and physios all rolled away covering their ears.

There seemed to be some debate as to whether the original player receiving treatment was faking and maybe the explosive was some sort of test for that. Luckily, the result of the explosion appeared to be more shock and terror than physical harm.

It's unclear whether the person who threw the explosive was caught, but there should be punishments to come.
