Play suspended at EPL game due to drone hovering above field – Sydney Morning Herald

Play was suspended in the first half of an English Premier League match between Brentford and Wolverhampton on Saturday because a drone was hovering above the field.

The players were taken off the field by the referee in the 34th minute with the score at 0-0.

The incident took place around the half-hour mark with the score 0-0 as the referee asked the players to head back to the changing rooms at the Brentford Community Stadium.

The players returned 19 minutes later for a short warm-up and the match resumed after the drone was taken down.

There had already been a long stoppage in play following a sickening clash of heads between Brentford teammates Mathias Jensen and Rico Henry, which left both bleeding heavily. They were both replaced by concussion substitutes.
