Posted to Reddit today was a clip from a TV show in Iran that shows an Iranian soccer player picking up an object and tossing it from the field of play, and then said object exploding upon impact with the ground. Apparently, Iranian soccer hooligans do this from time to time, smuggle in homemade “grenades” that work like a more dangerous cherry bomb. Apparently this one didn’t go off when it was thrown from the stands. Luckily, the soccer player decided to pick up the strange object and toss it rather than try to kick it from the field of play. The game was called off and officials are currently investigating the situation.
