North Korean women's soccer team stage walk out over flag mix up

The flag of South Korea was mistakenly shown on a big screen in Hampden Park and that sent North Korea's women's team walking off the field pitch prior to their Olympic soccer clash with Colombia.

The team left the field in Glasgow just before the scheduled kick off after the flag of neighboring country South Korea was shown next to the profile of their players.

London Game organizers were forced to issue a hasty apology and eventually the women returned to start the match.

The game was delayed for a little over an hour while fans listened to music to pass the time.

North Korea did however win that match, beating Columbia 2-0.
