Minnoy will go down in history as the referee who got knocked down in a game. FIFA ref from probably 1967 until 1973

Boom

The match was for the 1970 Fairs Cup between Newcastle United and Inter Milan when Inter goal keeper Lido Vieri punched Minnoy in the stomach. The first thing the Belgian did when he recovered was to send off Vieri who actually protested that decision. After that more punches were thrown and even the police was asked to come to the rescue. Vieri got fined and banned from playing for Italy for three years.
