This is absolutely disgraceful.
Terrible scenes halted the Kuwait Cup match between Al Jahra and Khaitan on Tuesday, as a sheik on the sidelines attacked the match referee in the middle of the game.
The incident began after an innocuous catalyst, as a disagreement broke out of the sidelines.
Matters quickly spiralled out of control as a sheik started attacking the ref.
The official was abused by punches and kicks, and whilst the ref did manage to land a couple of kicks of his own on the aggressor, ultimately the man in black took a beating.
Unbelievably, after the fracas was halted by security, another fight broke out on the sidelines involving the initial aggressor and players.
Watch the shocking scenes below.
