Footballer sent off for tackling Borat

7:30 am on 10 March 2011

A minor league footballer has been sent off for wrestling a pitch invader dressed as Borat to the ground, during a match in England.

Despite the protests of both teams the Dorchester Town player-manager Ashley Vickers was shown a red card for intervening after the unwanted second-half invasion by a man, sporting only a bright green mankini and white socks.

Football officials are expected to quash the red card Vickers.
