Tackled Footballer Does Fish Out Of Water Impression

At least, on this occasion, it was definitely a bad foul; but the subsequent reaction from the player was, simply, an Oscar-winning performance.

Chesterfield defender Dan Jones was on the end of a shocking foul by Sheffield United striker Michael Higdon during the match between the two sides on Saturday but, just in case the referee was in any doubt as to whether it should be a sending-off, he proceeded to perform a series of writhing movements resembling a fish brought ashore.

His moves included the full body pivot, the classic clutch-and-roll, the hop along and - best of all - performing the worm. He wouldn't have looked out of place in a Run DMC video.

Take a look and marvel in the clip below; it had the desired effect, as referee Mark Brown produced the red card, and the Spireites went on to win 3-2 to move into 6th place in the League 1.
