A Soccer player booked by a no-nonsense referee for diving had in fact dropped dead of a heart attack.
Goran Tunjic, a 32-year-old defender playing for the Croatian side Mladost, collapsed and fell over after being tackled in the 35th minute of a game against local rivals Hrvatski Sokola.
The ref, who had warned the teams in their dressing rooms before kick-off that he would deal firmly with any play-acting, promptly strode across the pitch to the prone player and waved a yellow card at him.
The Sokola supporters cheered but players who gathered around saw Tunjic was in serious trouble.
The referee realised his mistake and called for medical aid. The unconscious Tunjic was stretchered from the field and taken to a nearby hospital.
But he was declared dead on arrival, with doctors saying he had almost certainly died on the pitch from a massive heart attack.

Okay, this is SGI News at its best. As morbid as this is, I think I would've yellow carded the player too. If anybody can find some nice Youtube of this i'd be glad. For some reason I can't load it up. Anyways, this is morbidly hillarious.
