A referee in Kuwait finally snapped during the clash between Al Nasr and Al Arabi, punching and kicking players after awarding a penalty.

The official was aggressively approached by a number of the Alnaser team after correctly awarding a penalty to the hosts for a challenge in the penalty box.

And, after initially going head-to-head with one man, he dropped another who pulled his shirt and attempted to drag him.

The goalkeeper then attempted to act as peacemaker, restraining a number of his colleagues as they tried to get their hands on the man in the middle.

It was the referee who stuck the boot in though, kicking another en-rushing Alnaser player before showing him a red card – as well as one of his teammates who had actually done little in this particular melee.

The camera then cuts to the referee at the far side of the pitch, as appears to send-off either a sheikh or a substitute.

Alarabi then smash home the penalty, with the goalscorer getting a hug from his keeper for the brilliant effort.

But the drama didn’t end there, as the Alnaser striker then smashes the ball at the referee straight from the kick-off. Another red card follows.
