(KGTV) - Did tv footage really show a boy smoking a cigarette at a soccer game in Turkey?


A brief shot during a televised match appeared to show a child puffing away in the stands.

It turns out, he's actually a very young-looking 36-year-old man who came to the game with his son.

But there could be another problem. Public smoking is banned in Turkey and the man could be facing a fine.
