19 Crazy Sports Fans From Around the World

We're a passionate bunch in Australia when it comes to sport but here's a list of the world's craziest fans

#1 Look at this guy's ....err... passion.

#2 Nothing says I love my team like wearing matching outfits. Chivas fans in Mexico are particularly fond of this.

#3 Jimmy Jump is infamous for for pitch invasions but he loves Barcelona.

#4 Don't get on the wrong side of this lady at a game!

#5 Larissa Riquelme created a stir when she promised to run through the streets naked if her beloved Paraguay won the World Cup. That didn't happen but the model did it a year later for Playboy Brazil.

#6 Everyone remembers when they found out wrestling wasn't real. It was a bit like finding there isn't a mysterious fat man in a red suit who slides down your chimney once a year. This guy just took 30 years to accept it. Dedicated.

#7 This English soccer fan went a little too far with the tatts, eh?

#8 This Chelsea Fan is pretty stoked that they are one-nil up.

#9 Then there's this college American football fan. Calm down mate, it's only college stuff.

#10 Lebron James is a pretty good at that basketball thing but this is a bit much.

#11 You won't need to look up the definition of the below hockey parlance to know what she's on about. And yes, it is real.

#12 Green Bay Packers fans show their "dedication".... by wearing matching bikinis. Good on them.

#13 We have no idea really. Americans, eh?

#14 These blokes just couldn't contain themselves after a few frothies....

#15 Fans can do anything when they put their minds to it. This lot were frustrated that their team couldn't score a goal.

#16 This guy from the Ukraine.

#17 Thanks for the reminder.

#18 She's passionate but she doesn't like swearing.....

#19 Nothing says I'm committed quite like dressing up as your team's cheerleader...

And here are some Aussie soccer fans celebrating after beating Japan in 2006....onya...

Bernard Tomic

© 2014 AFP - Bernard Tomic has suffered the fastest defeat in ATP history, crashing out of the Miami Masters hardcourt event in his first match following hip surgery in January.

The world No.74 lost 6-0 6-1 to Finland's Jarkko Nieminen in a record 28 minutes, 20 seconds, the shortest ATP Tour match ever recorded, beating the old mark by a mere minute.

Tomic was unruffled by the defeat, in which he lost the first nine games.

"This was the first match back after the operation. It's all part of the rehabilitation process," Tomic said.

"I'm not disappointed. I just have to keep working to improve my game."

Tomic was playing for the first time since January 14, when he retired against Spanish world No.1 Rafael Nadal after losing the first set of his first-round match at the Australian Open.

He underwent surgery a week later and has been rehabilitating for the past few weeks.

The previous record for the shortest match was set in 1996 at the Sydney International when Greg Rusedski beat Carsten Arriens 6-0 6-0.
