The medical cart driver at the AFCON deserves 4 penalty points for almost parking on a player

Remember, the accelerator is to go fast and the break is to slow down.

DR CONGO BEAT CONGO in the quarter-final of the African Cup of Nations yesterday but perhaps the losing side would have done a bit better if their medical cart driver wasn’t so eager.

One of the Congo players was being placed on a stretcher during the game when this guy thundered across the pitch like Eddie Irvine.

He probably pushed the accelerator instead of the break. I haven’t seen such a disgraceful display of driving at a sporting event since this miniature car accident in a Top 14 game earlier in the season.


The operators of both of those vehicles definitely didn’t pass their driving tests the first time. Or the second time.
