Football fail: Greek medics drop injured player

It’s a scene that would look less out of place in a comedy movie than sporting match.

A video has gone viral of an injured football player being dropped not once, but twice, by medics as they attempt to stretcher him to the sideline.


The incident occurred in one of Greece’s premier football leagues after a player hit the ground and was awarded a free kick.

Although fans began to argue and accuse the player of faking his injury, the medics took his prolonged presence on the ground as a sign to bring out the stretcher.

A slip and slide, tug of war, then played out as the medic’s attempted to stretcher the man to the sidelines.
