WATCH: This Is Officially The Worst Dive In Football History

In recent years in football, diving has become a glaring problem - so much so that the FA announced that anyone who cons a referee next with theatrics next season will be given a two-game ban.

We've seen so many shambolic dives in football over the years. Victor Moses' effort to win Chelsea a penalty was utterly pathetic and saw him deservedly pick up a second yellow, while Alexis Sanchez going down incredibly easy after being hit by a throw-in from Christian Fuchs in a 1-0 win over Leicester City being one of the most recent examples.

But in the Hungarian first division, we've found a dive that may well be the worst we've ever seen. It's quite a statement but that's how bad it is.

The culprit is Videoton's Danko Lazovic, with the incident taking place during a 1-0 defeat over Honved on Saturday.

After getting to the ball first, Lazovic does appear to be fouled and a free-kick is probably the right call.


But the antics of the former PSV and Feyenoord man are absolutely mental - flopping and rolling over the place as if he's having some sort of exorcism or neath-death experience. Legs and arms being thrown vigorously, with the 34-year old even refusing the aid of his teammates in order to keep his art of conning on point.

His manager, former Manchester United and Blackburn defender Henning Berg, looked far from impressed.

Imagine if you were playing in your local Sunday League clash and a player pulled out theatrics like that? He'd been sent packing very swiftly.


Can you think of a worse case of play-acting?
