Every sport has passionate fans, there's no denying it. However, one man decided to take his anger out on the referee in an over-the-top kind of way.

On Monday, a social media user, Dineo Daisy Diphoko, posted a video on Twitter showing a man speeding onto a soccer field.

Diphoko claims the man allegedly attempted to run over the referee with his grey SUV. The clip shows a motorist speeding onto a soccer field while onlookers watch in horror.

Although it doesn't appear that he hit anyone, players and match officials were left running for their lives.

Briefly.co.za could not determine where or when the video was filmed and Diphoko's claims are yet to be verified.
