Ashley Young 'dive': From the Manchester United winger to Rivaldo - the worst divers in football
We take a look through the hall of shame
With Gareth Bale having left for Real Madrid, some may have thought the issue of diving had gone with the Welshman to Spain.
But that is certainly not the case.
It would seem that Manchester United winger Ashley Young has taken it upon himself to carry the diving mantel. Having already taken tumbles early in the season in a match against Crystal Palace, the England international was at it again against Real Sociedad in the Champions League.
Former United players Roy Keane and Ray Wilkins laid into the winger, claiming he had 'conned the referee' to win a penalty. At least some justice was served with Robin van Persie smashing the resultant spot-kick off the post.
In light of Young's tumble, we've picked out the footballers more deserving of an Oscar than a spot-kick in our countdown of the worst divers in football.
