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.
