Snow stops play in Belgium - snowballs pelt players

The big game in Belgium was forced to be suspended on Sunday due to snow - but unlike Britain where it was natural - this snowstorm was entirely man-made.

Club Brugge fans forced the referee to suspend the match against Anderlecht after pelting them with snowballs during the early stages of today's Jupiler League match.

Play was suspended after seven minutes when the Anderlecht players Jonathan Legear and Mbark Boussoufa were unable to take corners under a barrage from the home support.

Legear later celebrated the 2-0 victory by Anderlecht by lobbing snowballs in the direction of his own fans, had to be aided by two team-mates after he was restrained and then shoved by a Brugge steward.
