WHAT??! South Africa dismiss ex-Bournemouth striker Rantie for farting!

The South Africa national team has reportedly dumped Tokelo Rantie because he farted at manager Ephraim Mashaba.

The former AFC Bournemouth striker, currently in Turkey with Genclerbirligi, reportedly pulled down his trousers and farted in the direction of head coach Mashaba, which prompted his swift omission from the squad at the last international break.

At the time, a statement from Bafana Banana read: "We thought in the spirit of encouraging team spirit and discipline, we must release Rantie from camp."

According to The Sun, however, a local South African report said: "Tokelo Rantie pulled down his pants and let one rip in the direction of Bafana Bafana coach Ephraim 'Shakes' Mashaba a few days ago in one of the most bizarre acts of obscenity ever seen in the national team.

"The flatulence was so suffocating that the putrid stench continues to hover over the team like a dark cloud."
