"The big Classic was overshadowed by the throwing of loads of objects on the field." : Last month a match between Real Madrid and F.A. Barcelona was suspended for 15 minutes due to "due to the continuous throwing of objects."

BBC says "... whisky bottle and pig head." And the Guardian even has a pic, but I don't know if that's real.
