Hearts 1-2 Hibernian: Smoke bombs and COCONUT thrown onto pitch during Edinburgh derby
A fan launched a coconut onto the pitch during Saturday’s Edinburgh derby between Hearts and Hibernian at Tynecastle.
Hibs scored in the 28th minute to level the game at 1-1, and in the aftermath of the goal, the tropical fruit was pictured on the playing surface.
Kick-off was delayed after supporters let off smoke bombs and both goals were celebrated with pyrotechnics in appropriate team colours.
Referee Willie Collum had to stop play on a couple of occasions to clear the pyro from the pitch.
The chaos comes after a firecracker was launched onto the pitch at St Mirren vs Celtic earlier this week.

Horgan then won the game for Hibs after starting and finishing a delightful move.
But amid all the excitement, viewers were left bemused as the coconut was seen on the pitch as Horgan celebrated his first.
