Football fans are more than familiar with the ridiculous reactions of some footballers following minimal contact in a challenge for possession.
Virgil van Dijk inspired one such response from Victor Osimhen with the latter collapsing dramatically after being brushed by the centre-half’s hand.
It would have been utterly farcical to see the Dutchman carded for the nothing incident and we’re glad to see common sense prevailed for the on-pitch official.
