The worst dive in the history of football

Football has seen some brilliant play-acting and dives in its history from Rivaldo's famous performance in 2002 to Alberto Gilardino's majestic swan dive against Celtic. But now someone has topped them all with the worst dive in the history of football. Step up Emerson Acuna.

The Colombian striker, who plays for Atletico National in his home country, falls over in the box like a sack of spuds despite there being no defenders within six feet as if he had been shot by the gunman on the grassy knoll.

The most amusing part of the whole episode is the fact that the myopic referee gave a penalty. And to think that people complain about Premier League officials.
