There was an unusual spectator in Wednesday's Champions League round-of-16 clash between Besiktas and Bayern Munich.

A ginger cat ventured onto the playing area during the second half, with referee Michael Oliver halting the game until it had left.

This has not gone down well with UEFA who has promptly charged the host, Besiktas with "insufficient organisation" the second leg round-of-16 tie.


In addition to the charge of insufficient organisation, Besiktas have also been charged over both the throwing of objects and blocked stairways.

UEFA's disciplinary body will consider the case on May 31.

In a poll on Bayern's official Twitter feed, fans voted the cat Man of the Match after a 3-1 win sealed an 8-1 aggregate victory.
