Field hockey fans watching the world final were in for a surprise when a silly scamp trotted onto the field and began hamming it up.
Players in the match between Germany and England caught a stress-relieving break when they saw the dog joyfully bound across the Argentinian field. But his streak was short-lived, and he was quickly scooped up and carried off to the sidelines.
Unlike the last time a dog stormed a field mid-game in Argentina, this dog was treated far more kindly. Perhaps he should be made mascot of the arena? After all, you can’t play with a ball and expect a dog not to join in!
