Diving is a real epidemic in Football. Every single week, it seems that the Premier League is riddled with dives.

And this week, it was Harry Kane who hit the headlines for his antics on the pitch.

The day started off so well for Kane and Spurs.

He gave his side the lead after just 22 minutes, firing a wonderful strike with his left foot past Rui Patrício.

Spurs consolidated their lead going into the final 20 minutes of the game but, with the finish line in sight, Spurs capitulated.

Willy Boly levelled proceedings with 18 minutes to go, before further goals from Raul Jimenez and Helder Costa gave the away side the victory.

It was in that final 20 minutes where Kane was booked for diving.

With the scores still level at 1-1, Kane went to ground without any contact.

He then had the nerve to stay down and pretend he was hurt. That is just embarrassing. 

The English striker is one of the world's best strikers, but this act of simulation has let him down massively.

Well done to Stuart Attwell for identifying his cheating and giving him a booking for his troubles.

Football fans widely condemned Kane for his actions, and rightly so.

Even Spurs fans were disappointed with their star man.

Kane spoke to the media after the game, saying the result was a 'shame'.

"We just didn’t keep the ball well enough," he said, per the Guardian. "Wolves kept the pressure on and whenever we got it we gave it straight back again.

"Disappointing. These are games that we should be winning, so it’s a shame we finished the year the way we have.

"Second half we just didn’t keep the ball enough. We didn’t have the same energy as the first and we’ve only got ourselves to blame.

"Games like this at home are games we should be winning, especially when you’re 1-0 up.

"Disappointing, but we’ve got a game in three days and we need to dust ourselves down and get back to winning ways.

"We’ve been through a stage in the season already when we lost a couple and we bounced back. Now it’s important that we do that again."
