Besiktas fined after cat interrupts Champions League clash with Bayern Munich

UEFA have hit Besiktas with a €34,000 fine (approx. $40,000) for the heinous crime of letting a cat interrupt their Champions League round-of-16 tie against Bayern Munich back in March.

Referee Michael Oliver had to halt play for a couple of minutes at the Vodafone Arena when the ginger feline came nonchalantly trotting out onto the pitch in the second half of the match.

UEFA subsequently charged Besiktas, finding them guilty of "insufficient organisation" as well as several other disciplinary breaches, including objects being hurled from the terraces and stairways being blocked by fans.

The Turkish club were well and truly walloped on the night, losing 3-1 to Bayern to ensure they were jettisoned from the Champions League with an 8-1 aggregate defeat.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
