Jamie Sanderson metro.co.uk A Brazilian football fan has been killed after he was hit by a flying toilet bowl following angry clashes with rival supporters. The incident happened after the second division match between Santa Cruz and Parana in Recife this week. Police were called to Gate Six of the stadium after the full-time whistle amid reports of angry clashes between fans. Some supporters were spotted vandalising the ground and throwing objects, with one ripping out a toilet before hurling it off the stand onto a crowd gathered below. ‘The toilet was thrown from the stands and hit him full on,’ an officer told Globoesporte. ‘The victim was with somebody at the time but everyone fled the scene after the incident.’ The clashes come just days after Fifa’s president Sepp Blatter said he was confident the forthcoming World Cup would be free from trouble, despite the fan clashes becoming a common occurrence after Brazilian league matches. to read more: metro.co.uk
