An Australian team football team was reduced to ten men after a player refused to remove a piercing from his penis.
Aaron Eccleston was playing for Melbourne side Old Hill Wanderers reserves when the referee demanded he remove his piercing, reports Sports News First.
After Eccleston refused, the referee marched him into the dressing room, before re-emerging to officially show him the red card.
Old Hill still managed to win beat Swinburne Reserves 3-0, with the club's website headlining the win: 'Old Hill Reserves Triumph despite Cock Up'.
A club spokesman said: "During the first half, our player was struck in the groin by the ball, and left the field to receive attention.
"At this point the referee became aware that the he had a body piercing. He subsequently received two yellow cards, firstly for re-entering the field of play without the referee's permission, and secondly for privacy reasons being unable to prove that he had removed the piercing.
"At no point during the incident did the player of Old Hill Wanderers expose himself to the referee or to other players on the field.
"Old Hill Wanderers FC is satisfied that the conduct of both the referee and our player was reasonable, and accepts that the two yellow cards given to the player were in accordance with the laws of football."
