Bees held up play for 20 minutes in Brazil

The discovery of a beehive on a crossbar held up play for 20 minutes at a football match in Brazil on Sunday.

The Goiania state championship match between Vila Nova and Goias at the Serra Dourada was delayed when hundreds of bees gathered on one of the goals.

The fire brigade was called in and they used an extinguisher and a flaming torch to get rid of the bees.

The Serra Dourada will stage the international friendly between Brazil and Holland on 4 June.
