Footage of chaos in an arena after a player in Florence's infamous Calcio Storico allegedly punched the referee.

Calcio Storico Fiorentino translates as Historic Florentine Football.

Players have to get the ball into the net using either their hands or feet, but they're allowed to use martial arts of all kinds to stop the opposition so it tends to get pretty violent.

After this incident, the police also reportedly got involved.
