- Ben Stokes has been caught in a foul-mouthed rant towards a fan

Ben Stokes has been caught on camera calling a cricket fan a ‘f***ing four-eyed c***’ as he made his way to the dressing room in Johannesburg after being out for just two on Friday.
The x-rated rant came after England lost a clutch of wickets after tea on the first day and Stokes snapped as his dismissal saw the tourists collapse to 157 for four.
He was on the steps towards the dressing room when the camera following him overheard him telling a fan off picture: ‘Say it to me outside the ground you f***ing four-eyed c***”.

Stokes was dismissed when he edged to Rassie van der Dussen off the bowling of Anrich Nortje and he appeared to be reacting angrily to comments made by the spectator.
Joe Root’s side ended the day on 192 for four after choosing to bat first.
It is Stokes’ lowest score of what has been a superb individual series with both bat and ball so far.
He bowled England to victory on the fifth evening of the Cape Town Test and scored his ninth Test hundred during the innings victory in Port Elizabeth last week.

Sky Sports were forced to apologise for any offence caused when they accidentally aired the footage, and Stokes could now find himself in hot water.
It comes after Jos Buttler was overheard calling South African bowler Vernon Philander a ‘f***ing k***head’ by the stump mic in the second Test earlier this month.
Stokes was last month voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year and was England’s man of the match as they lifted the Cricket World Cup last summer.
