Un-BEE-lievable! Swarm of invading bees forces footballers to dive for cover in Tanzania (VIDEO)
Players in the game between Young Africans and Iringa United were forced to dive for cover after an unusually large swarm of bees invaded a match between two the Tanzanian sides at Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam.
Per reports, the swarm of bees began to disrupt the game in the 53rd minute when they forced players to dive for cover and seek shelter from the flying insects.
Some of the video from the game seems to suggest that several of the players were stung by the bees, while fans in the stands retreated in an attempt to avoid the animals.
