Watch: Dutch referee 'booked' for diving by player

Jochem Kamphuis

The penultimate round of Eredivisie fixtures was played on Sunday, including this match between Europa League-chasing Vitesse and bottom side Twente.

Here's referee Jochem Kamphuis taking a tumble in the second half of that game – and then being booked for simulation by one of the home side's players, Navarone Foor. 

Thankfully, Kamphuis enjoyed the moment – unlike Scotland's Dougie Smith in 1995, who famously responded to Paul Gascoigne's brandishing of a yellow card with an actual booking for the Rangers favourite. 

Hapless Twente were already on their way to a 5-0 defeat – and relegation – against Vitesse, who have done enough to earn a Europa League play-off. Chelsea loanee Mason Mount, their player of the year, got among the goals.  

Gazza would approve... 

(This video does work. Honest.)
