Denis da Silva Ribeiro Serafim who peed on himself seconds before the start of a match between Boavista and Goias has received a six-months ban.
The referee relieved himself without pulling down his shorts but was filmed on TV. The commenters failed to capture this extra-ordinary drama as he did it discretely.
It is the telltale urine that ran down his leg that captured the attention of eagle-eyed viewers. As the match continued, the footage went viral
A wet patch could be seen around his private parts indicating that he had run out of time to use the toilets in the dressing room before he came into the pitch.
Fans stormed social media to make fun of the whole drama. One user on social media suggested: The ref peed in his pants so he didn’t have to go to the toilet to delay the match.
Edison Junior who was a sports reporter also took a dig of the whole incident. He added: “The referee urinated before the match….. in his pants. It must been hard going through the first half with his pants wet
