A football referee has set a new world record - by showing his red card 36 times in one game.

Damian Rubino sent off all 22 players plus the substitutes and technical staff as a mass brawl erupted.

It happened in Buenos Aires, Argentina, during a match between Claypole and Victoriano Arenas, reports The Sun.

Domingo Sganga, manager of Victoriano Arenas, said it was so bad he asked police to lock opposition players in their dressing room.

"They wanted to kill me," said Sganga whose side lost the match 2-0..

But Claypole boss Sergio Micieli accused the ref of over-reacting: "Most players were trying to separate people. The ref was confused," he said.

The world record was previously held by a 1993 game in Paraguay where 20 players were sent off.
