Wind blows goalframe out to corner flag, crashes into fan

World of Sport

A Norwegian Cup game between Levanger and Kristiansund descended into farce when the wind blew so strongly that the goal flew out of place and crashed into a fan.

The tie was brought to a halt as the frame travelled beyond the corner flag from its original place.

The unfortunate supporter in the goal's path was floored by the frame, but did quickly rise back to his feet with injuries no more serious than a sore head.

And once the gusts died down, it took eight players to drag the goal back into place for the match to resume.

Levanger went on to win the match 4-2 after extra time.
