Tension between Australia and Hungary water polo players boiled over as time wound down in the Group A qualifier – with punches thrown by both sets of players.

It was all over quickly but was a dramatic moment in a tense game.

Favourites Hungary had been leading the Australians and looked to be holding on for an important victory, before Australia equalised with time running out.

With just 26 seconds remaining, Australia scored to make it 9-9 and knock the wind out of the sails of the powerhouse.
