Two pilots from Pobeda Airlines are under investigation for flying a plane to make the shape of a penis on a flight tracker as a show of support for Artem Dzyuba.

The Zenit Saint Petersburg striker was recently dropped from Russia’s national team squad after the emergence of a video that appeared to show him masturbating.

To protest the ban, the pilots performed loops while flying from Moscow to Yekaterinburg to form an obscene graphic on the radar, causing a twenty-minute delay.

Dzyuba is enjoying another prolific season at club level, with seven goals in ten matches to date.
