Aussie wrestler disqualified at Delhi Games

7:42 am on 6 October 2010

The Australian wrestler Hassene Fkiri lost his temper and a certain medal in the 96kg Greco-Roman class at the Delhi Commonwealth Games.

Fkiri was disqualified midway through his gold medal bout against India's Anil Kumar.

Fkiri appeared to have been disqualified for making an obscene gesture to the judges.

The Australian looked frustrated during the bout, at one point trying to slap and headbutt his opponent before eventually giving the finger to international wrestling officials.
