Guardian Cartoonist Pulled Off A Masterstroke On The Vardy Diving Incident

during the Barclays Premier League match between Leicester City and West Ham United at The King Power Stadium on April 17, 2016 in Leicester, England.

It’s the biggest story of the weekend and is one of the major incidents to have happened this season. Jamie Vardy and his simulating views have divided football for the past days.

The Twitter reaction was incredible, with all sides of the argument stating unequivocally that their opinion was right. Jamie Carragher’s excellent analysis on Sky’s Monday Night Football should have put the debate to bed but it only fanned the flames on Twitter.

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, here’s what happened:

With Leicester a goal up on sixth-placed West Ham, Vardy raced through on goal, going to ground with Hammers defender Angelo Ogbonna in close pursuit. Referee Jon Moss adjudged him to be guilty of simulation and cautioned him for a second time, dismissing the striker.

The Guardian’s cartoonist has since used the fiery argument to inspire his latest publication, and what he produced was pure comedy gold.

Take a look at David Squires’ sensational work below.

Combining current affairs and the mock seriousness of the Vardy incident, Squires nailed it.
