This will be the most disturbing/random story you read all day. So get ready.

OK, here goes. A Swiss commentator vomited live on air while calling Lazio's game against Atlanta yesterday. 

Early on in the game with the score still at 0-0, the Swiss commentator - who remains nameless for the time being - was in the middle of describing the action before suddenly falling silent. Viewers in Switzerland were then treated to the unpleasant sound of a man retching as the action on the field continued.  

You can check out the video - which was brought to our attention by 101GreatGoals - of the incident if you really, *really* want to at the bottom of this article.

Lazio ran out 2-0 winners in the game at the Stadio Olimpico thanks to a brace from ageless striker Miroslav Klose. The goals were the 37-year-old's first of the season in Serie A.

The win means the Rome-based club are now in eighth place in the Italian league, 13 points adrift of the top five and a Europa League spot.

It's not been a good week for Lazio, who are facing charges from UEFA after their fans reportedly sang racist chants during their Europa League tie against Sparta Prague.

Zimbabwean defender Costa Nhamoinesu was the victim of the abuse, and UEFA say the will act accordingly to punish the Italian outfit. European football's governing body confirmed it had charged Lazio with ''racist behaviour'' by fans, plus ''illicit chants'' and displaying an offensive banner.


Unfortunately, last Thursday's incident wasn't the first involving Lazio. Their match against Napoli earlier this season had to be suspended for three minutes after racist abuse was aimed at defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

The Napoli player said after the game: “I want to thank the Lazio players, but especially the referee Irrati for his courage,” he wrote. “I thank my team mates, the public and our fans, who have been a great support against these ugly chants. I want to thank everyone for the messages of solidarity which I have received.”

Lazio take on Sparta Prague in the second leg of their last-16 Europa League tie this week at the Stadio Olimpico. 

Do you think Lazio should be banned from the Europa League over last Thursday's incident?
