Shocking scenes unravelled before the eyes of Norwegian television viewers last week during a football match between rival television stations.

An already tense atmosphere was given an extra charge on TV2’s Golden Goal when the show’s two presenters were armed with remote control electric shock kits primed to inflict pain on referee and players alike.

Former Premier League star Jan Aage Fjørtoft was among the victims when a team of Viasat football experts took on their counterparts from TV2.

Presenters Johan Golden and Henrik Elvestad missed no opportunity to inflict varying levels of pain on the terrified players in a piece of television history that’s as shocking as it is unmissable.

Watch it here. Action starts at 1:03.
