Basketball ref Lazaros Voreadis…

Basketball ref Lazaros Voreadis, struck by a projectile thrown by an Olympiakos fan, is comforted by colleague Nikos Papadimitriou, during Sunday’s Olympiakos-Panathinaikos Greek Basketball League game. After a second incident occurred, the referees interrupted the game in favor of Panathinaikos. Olympiakos was deducted a point and faces further sanctions. After making an unsuccessful attempt to acquire the Portuguese coach last summer, defending champion Olympiakos, whose coach Takis Lemonis, a former player for the club, is believed to be on shaky ground, is reportedly still interested in handing Santos the team’s reins as a result of his impressive run at the AEK club.
