We've heard about hard-fought wins before, but you've probably not seen anything like this. The final of a Russian women’s handball championship game decided to end in a massive brawl.

Dynamo Volgograd were hosting Zvezda from the Moscow region, but it turned out the visitors didn't know the first thing about fair play.

Zvezda players were guilty of some appalling fouls, which earned one of their players a red card, but it didn’t put a halt to their rough antics. At the end it sparked huge fight involving girls from both teams.

However, regardless of the fisticuffs, Dynamo won the game to lift the Russian Championship trophy.
