Referees have to put up with a lot in the modern game, but rarely do they get physically harmed on the pitch.

This happened to Mark Clattenburg , one of the most distinguished referees in the game, when a stray bottle hit him in the face.

He has officiated in the Premier League but now plies his trade in the gulf state of Saudi Arabia and Al-Ettifaq left-back Hussein Sayed inadvertently lobbed a bottle at the man in the middle.

Clattenburg seemed quite shock in the immediate aftermath before Sayed swiftly apologised to him.

And Clattenburg was a good sport when he jokingly gave the player a yellow card. Watch the incident below...
