There was a bizarre delay early on in Sunday's Premier League match between Hull City and Arsenal at the KC Stadium.

Less than five minutes into the match, a strong gust of wind blew advertising hoardings onto the pitch.

The likes of Santi Cazorla and George Boyd were forced to retrieve the signs from the field of play.

It is not exactly tropical weather up on Humberside.
