Being a linesman is a job only for the hardened soul, with calls by the flag-bearing official often coming under greater scrutiny than those made by the referee.
As if patrolling the touchline was not a difficult job already, one linesman had his task made even harder when he came under attack from a bird while attempting to perform his duties.
Information on this particular incident is pretty thin on the ground, so we are unable to inform you of quite why the bird was so incensed or even where the match in question is taking place.
But it is certainly one of the most bizarre incidents you will come across on a football field, and is definitely worth a watch.
Take a gander at the bird gunning for the linesman in the video above, and thanks goes to 101greatgoals for spotting this first.
