We had an inkling that this match might be in trouble when Ukraine's national anthem was greeted by a flash of lightning and a peal of thunder, but it wasn't entirely clear if that was the sky's salute to Andriy Shevchenko or something more... rainy.
And then it got really, really, really wet. Lightning knifed through the sky, water poured down - we're talking biblical rainfall here - and the players were looking like miserable, half-drowned rodents. Nobody could do anything with the ball, the play was sloppy and the conditions were looking frankly dangerous even without the terrifying prospect of a lightning strike. Thankfully, play has now been suspended, with referee Björn Kuipers making the wholly sensible decision to order the players off the pitch and start building an ark or something. Hopefully the Donbass Arena can float, because this storm is absolutely ridiculous.
Oh, and it's 0-0 still. We got about seven minutes of 'play'. It's unclear how quickly this will be over - hopefully the drainage system will be able to deal with this water, because the pitch is already starting to flood.
