Referee, Howard Webb has gone into hiding until the vuvuzelas die down.

He will, from this day forth, be forever known as 'Card Happy Webb' or to his friends, if he has any left, he will be known as "Card Happy Howard' following his shenanigans in the final of the World Cup.

His arm was in the air brandishing yellow cards more times than anyone could count. Football officials had to stay back and watch the replays to enable them to put an accurate number on the number of yellow cards Webb showed.

The Red one he showed to Heitinge was easy enough to count.

'Card Happy Webb' does not apologize for this, in fact, he said he was initially aiming at yellow-carding every player on the pitch, including the goalies, but even when the game went into extra time, he was unable to reach his goal.

The reason given was that he sometimes got a little sidetracked by the game that was being played and forgot what he was supposed to be doing.

The reason he is in hiding is being given as 'his arm is too tired and he needs to rest it before facing the public as he knows he'll be signing lots of autographs from now on.'

Harry Webb is certainly 'one in a million'.

Morrisons shops are closed this week.
