Aaron Hunt owns up to diving and gets referee to overturn penalty decision for Werder Bremen

Moments of fair play are few and far between in the 18-yard area, so it was refreshing to see Werder Bremen's Aaron Hunt own up to diving and convince the referee to overturn a penalty decision in the Bundesliga this weekend.

The 27-year-old was seemingly clipped as he charged into the box of Bremen's clash against Nurnberg, but when the referee pointed to the spot, Hunt did the honourable thing and confessed to his dive.

Of course, Bremen were winning 2-0 at the time, but I suppose we'll still give the most Englishly-named German international the thumbs up for this one.
