Football can often be referred to as the greatest theatre in sport but sometimes the players like to take the theatrics a little bit too far.

Diving, play-acting, gamesmanship ... whatever you want to call it it is a blight on the beautiful game when you see players going down at the slightest of contact or rolling around feigning injury.

From flamboyant flops, to classic double headbutts which fell both players and an attacker who manages to tackle himself, here are the best football dives Stuff could find.

A few of these "men" could do with a concrete pill or two.
