VIDEO: Tunisian Football Match Stopped After A Turkey Invades The Pitch

Just when you think you’ve seen it all in football, there’s a pitch invasion by a runaway turkey.

Yes, that’s right, a TURKEY!!!

This bizarre incident took place during a match in the Tunisian top flight between Djerba and Monastir.

The ref was forced to halt the game when the bird stormed the field, leaving players a little bit confused.

There were some hilarious efforts from officials and from players to try and catch the turkey in order to get play under way again.

One even fell over in his attempts to get a hold of the rogue pitch invader.

When the match was restarted Djerba were eventually beaten 2-1 by Monastir.

The win moves them up to 14th in the league, but still inside the relegation zone.

But it begs the serious question… why the hell was there a turkey inside the stadium in the first place?

You can check out the ridiculous video below.
