Coventry City fans do Klinsmann dives after shocking weather causes Nuneaton match to be called off
Sky Blues fans dive around in the driving rain at the Liberty Way Stadium
Coventry City fans made the most of some appaling conditions at the Liberty Way stadium on Saturday.
Driving torrential rain, thunder and lighting and gale-force winds caused the pre-season friendly between Coventry and local non-League side Nuneaton Town to be abandoned in the 53rd minute.
With the rain hammering down in the Midlands, a few Coventry City fans decided to show off their best imitation of Jurgen Klinsmann's infamous celebration.
A dozen or so fans entered the pitch from behind the goal and began diving around in the soaking wet penalty area, before stewards eventually braved the rain themselves and herded them back into the stand.
The rain eventually passed over, but after another inspection the pitch was deemed too unsafe to continue.
Coventry start their League One campaign at Bradford on Saturday 9 August.
