Bees Invasion Force Players to Run for Cover in Tanzania


An unusual sight occurred during a game in Tanzania, with players diving to the ground when a swarm of bees invaded the pitch.

The incident took place during a game between two local sides, Young Africans and Iringa United, at Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam, as reported by the BBC.

The bees entered the stadium in the 53rd minute of the game, with players falling to the ground to protect themselves.

Some of the players were stung by the bees but play eventually resumed following a short delay.

Fans also ran for cover but officials were able to see the funny side after the scare was over.

Young Africans ended up winning the game 4-0.

Even supporters inside the stadium also had to act quickly to protect themselves, with some leaving.

Players from both teams were scattered across the pitch but play eventually continued.
