Leeds United fans were full of sarcasm after West Bromwich Albion’s Hal Robson-Kanu took flight in yesterday’s draw between the two sides.
With Ben White approaching the Welshman to make a challenge, the forward anticipated contact and promptly threw himself to the ground in what appeared to be a dive.
It was a move that didn’t please the Yorkshire faithful with one fan taking to Twitter to claim Robson-Kanu was ‘rushed to the morgue’.
Rushed straight to the morgue.

The dive from the 29-year-old didn’t appear to impact the game as two sides played out a 1-1 draw to retain their respective places in the Championship table.
Semi Ajayi was the man who couldn’t separate the two sides as he put through at both ends.
His goal for the Baggies came after just two minutes after he turned in following a goalmouth scramble. He then ended up flicking the ball into his own net after Patrick Bamford headed a cross from Jack Harrison goalwards (via BBC).
Fans were far from happy with the Wales international for trying to make more of the attempted challenge from White as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Elland Road faithful:
White is the last Jedi
