Serbian referee who hilariously used footage on a fan’s mobile phone to overturn an offside decision has been banned for life, according to reports.

Stefan Lazovic went viral after pictures emerged of his budget ‘VAR check’ in one of Serbia’s lower-tier competitions earlier this week.

The match official originally ruled out a goal for offside before studying the spectator’s video, eventually deciding that the .er was in fact onside.

According to the Sun, Serbian chiefs were not impressed by the decision and have since stripped Lazovic of his duties.
