This cannot be tolerated. You cannot have fans interfering in the game. Especially in the final seconds of a playoff game. Now, it looks like the fan was knocked down as Adams crashed into her, and you would hope that she inadvertently grabbed his arm in reaction to falling. However, intentional or not, you cannot have fans interfering. You just can’t. Do you really want refs deciding if fan interference is intentional or not?

‘From worst to first’ doesn’t even do justice to what Leicester City just did. They weren’t just bad last season, they were on-the-brink-of-being-kicked-from-the-league bad. Now, they are league champions thanks to a little help from Chelsea, and the team’s reaction as the Chelsea-Tottenham game came to a close is everything sports should be.

The fans’ reaction was pretty good as well.
