An Austrian policeman attending a match in uniform at a football club in Vienna was caught dancing on camera.

As part of celebrations after a football game with the Association of Afghan Youths on Sunday in Donaustadt, an outlying suburb of Vienna, police officer Josef Böck led players and onlookers in a victory dance.

A visiting team, FC Azadi, a team from Bochum in Germany, provided some fellow dancers and musical accompaniment. 

Böck, 57, is director of the minorities department of the Vienna police. "In this culture, it is customary to celebrate so. The invitation was an honour that I was delighted to accept," said the officer.
