Malmo player throws corner flag at opposing fans after they throw explosive at him

The Allsvenskanliga match between IFK Gothenburg and Malmo was abandoned when a player heaved the corner flag into the crowd after an explosive device thrown from the stands went off near his feet. Malmo’s Tobias Sana, who played for rivals IFK from 2009 to 2012, was warming up on the touchline when the firework landed near him and went off in the 78th minute. Sana then charged towards the area of the stands where it came from, picked up the corner flag and threw it like a javelin into the crowd. It didn’t appear to hit anyone.
