WATCH - Daydreaming official takes out a number of 1,500m runners in hilarious fail
An official caused consternation during a 1,500m race in California yesterday.
He was nonchalantly walking across the track during the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto not realising that the runners were fast approaching.
He took out a number of runners as he tried desperately to evade the competitors.
British athlete Michael Rimmer was one of the runners affected but he saw the funny side.
