An incensed referee assaulted a journalist in the Angolan city of Lubango on the weekend after being criticised for poor officiating, the state-run Angop news agency reported on Monday.
Referee Jose Mundila attacked radio reporter Pepe Antonio,
of the state-owned Radio 5 station after he had aired criticism of Mundila's handling of matches at a pre-season tournament in the southern Huila province.
The reporter also hinted that Mundila had been taking bribes
to influence the results of matches, Angop said. There was no evidence that this was the case.
The reporter was not seriously hurt in the attack after
officials at the stadium quickly stepped in to stop the irate
referee for raining more blows.
