Ponte Preta and Atletico Sorocaba's match was delayed on Saturday when bees stopped play.

No, an unruly bunch of Brentford fans weren't in town, an actual swarm of bees congregated on the crossbar at the Moisés Lucarelli stadium.

The start of the game was delayed while exterminators used flame, smoke, chemicals and a black bin bag to remove the pesky pests.

Hot on the heels of last week's marauding pine marten in Switzerland, the bees join other animal invaders such as The Old Firm Fox, The Old Trafford Mice, The Anfield Cat, The Loftus Road Squirrel and The Ewood Park Chicken.

The players must have been buzzing when the game finally began (sorry).
