Prime Minister Scott Morrison has had an unfortunate sporting mishap in Tasmania on the campaign trail.

The PM was invited to join in a kid’s soccer match – still in his shirt, tie and formal shoes – at Devonport Strikers Soccer Club.

The nation’s leader, keen to get in on the action, powered from the outside of the field, towards the ball, his tie flapping over his shoulder.
