The Colombian newspaper Hoy went for an angry, NSFW front page in reaction to its team's 2-1 defeat to Brazil in the World Cup quarter-final.

"Spanish referee," the headline begins, before descending into a torrent of abuse.

To cut a long story short, the insult translates roughly to: "Son of the b---h who gave birth to you."

Referee Velasco Carballo came under criticism during the game for seemingly letting a lot of uncompromising Brazilian challenges go unpunished.

Colombia forward Falcao, who missed the tournament through injury, tweeted in Spanish that someone ought remember to contact the referee for the next game, because in this match, he had not turned up:

Para el próximo partido acuérdense de llamar al árbitro que hoy no vino.

— Radamel Falcao (@FALCAO) July 4, 2014

Still, even by the overreacting standards of a British tabloid, you'd be hard-pushed to find a headline like that on the front of The Sun anytime soon...
