Match abandoned due to a swarm of bees

It’s not too uncommon for football matches to go abandoned, often being weather related, though on Sunday a match in Ecuador was called off for a particularly buzzarre reason: bees! A swarm of bees meant that after only 10 minutes the match between River Plate and Aucas had to be abandoned. They even called in a beekeeper to try and save the day but their efforts proved unsuccessful.
