Racing versus River Plate visited by football 'ghost'

What is it about ghosts and South America? After the infamous Peruvian football spectre that haunted grounds last year, we bring you tenuous evidence of another possible sighting, this time in Argentina.

The spooky figure can be seen running up and down the line during Racing's recent match against River Plate, and in one particular close-up appears quite obviously to be a man jogging down the sideline.

But that explanation is no fun - far better to speculate wildly over the supernatural.

Previously, when presented with this sort of footage it's either two things - the shadow of a camera hovering over the pitch cast against the crowd or actually someone running up and down the sideline.

Concrete proof of a football 'ghost' warming up across the pitches of South America has yet to be presented. Maybe there is a deceased football-loving soul so tortured by his failure to make the grade that he now solemnly ploughs a lonely furrow down the sidelines, hoping to get the nod from a gaffer that looks right through him.

Probably not though.

As the match itself - a little context. Racing Club's 1-0 victory over River Plate was a big deal anyway, ghost or no ghost. The win sent Racing Club top of the league with just two games of the season remaining.

The spirit world is clearly on their side.

So what do you think? Is our football ghost just a bloke wearing a grey tracksuit or is it something more sinister?!?
