Thousands of football fans flouted social distancing rules to attend the Bulgarian Cup final between Lokomotiv Plovdiv and CSKA Sofia.

According to reports, the authorities had increased the number of spectators at Sofia's Vasil Levski National Stadium from 4,000 to 12,000.

The fans, however, ignored safety rules issued by the government, with many refusing to wear masks, despite being distributed for free at the stadium.

Lokomotiv Plovdiv beat CSKA Sofia 5-3 on penalties to win the Bulgarian Cup.
