The 25 Worst Dives of the Season in GIFs

Diving is, outside of Joey Barton's Twitter account and Charlie Adam's head, the ugliest part of football. Sometimes even the dives themselves can be very ugly indeed.

It seems like seldom a game goes by without a player being accused of diving. In fact, it feels like it's becoming more and more frequent.

So before FIFA brings in regulations to help prevent diving (don't hold your breath for that), we'll run through the 25 most ridiculous dives of the season so far. And, like Olympic diving, we will score them out of 10 for terribleness.

The more obvious and comical the dive, the more points will be awarded.

Many thanks to 101greatgoals.com for being the source of most of the GIFs.
