In today’s first must-see match, a squirrel interrupted the game between Queens Park Rangers and Leicester City at Loftus Road.

The incident happened in the 14th minute of the Championship game when a squirrel ran on to the pitch and stopped the game. Leicester City’s David Nugent then chased the squirrel around the pitch before the game could be re-started.

Here’s a GIF of Nugent chasing the squirrel.

And according to supporters at the ground, the crowd started singing “There’s only one Luis Suarez” as the squirrel ran around.
