How Soccer Fans Thank Their Team In The Middle Of A Match-Fixing Scandal

Turkish champions Fenerbahçe are embroiled in a huge match-fixing scandal that could see their team stripped of their title and relegated. Hours before yesterday's friendly with Ukranian side Shakhtar Donetsk, club chairman Aziz Yıldırım (who currently sits in jail) announced he would resign. So it's not a huge surprise that the game had to be called in the 67th minute after fans, some wearing masks of the chairman's face, stormed the pitch. [AP]
