It kicked off in the Athens Derby at the weekend in Greek football’s biggest game, Olympiakos v Panathinkaios, won 3-0 by the visitors.
The game spiraled out of control around a half-hour in when Olympiakos’ Olaitan collapsed on the pitch with a minor cardiac arrest, from which he’s recovered well.
Olympiakos fans began raining missiles down on the pitch in the confusion that ensued, and Yiannis Anastasiou took a full bottle of Coca-Cola to the face, as can be seen in the Vine below.
You get the feeling Greek’s authorities won’t be conducting a witch hunt to track down the perpetrator…
Thankfully Anastasiou escaped serious injury from the missile.
