Play had to be stopped deep into added time at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday when the sprinklers were switched on during Bournemouth’s game against Wolves.

The Premier League clash was interrupted in the 96th minute when the devices suddenly emerged from the grass and started spraying water everywhere.

"It's raining… No it's not, it's the sprinklers!"

Several players were forced to take evasive action in an effort to avoid being completely soaked.

Fortunately for them, it was a considerably mild February afternoon.
