Besiktas have been charged by UEFA after a cat wandered onto the pitch during the Champions League last-16 defeat by Bayern Munich.

English referee Michael Oliver stopped play in the second half at Vodafone Park until the cat left the pitch.

The exact charge is “insufficient organisation”, while the Turkish club has also been charged with “throwing objects and blocked stairways”.

The case will be heard by UEFA’s disciplinary body on May 31.

Bayern won 3-1 on the night and 8-1 on aggregate to progress to the quarter-finals and fans of the German club voted the cat as their man of the match.
