Female hooligan 'hid flare inside body'

Police in Russia are searching for a female football hooligan who they say injured a goalkeeper with a firecracker she had hidden inside her vagina.

Dynamo Moscow goalkeeper Anton Shunin was taken to hospital to be treated for damage to his eyes after the firework exploded in his face.

Police say video footage shows it was thrown by a female Zenit St Petersburg fan - and that they have evidence how she smuggled it into the ground.

A police source told journalists that female fans commonly used contraceptives to carry flares into the stands inside their bodies.

"During the inspection of the stadium after Dynamo's match against Zenit..., the police found dozens of condoms in the ladies' room," the source said.

Russian football officials are to meet this week to discuss the incident and could award a technical victory to Dynamo.
