World cricketer of the year Ben Stokes had an angry altercation with a spectator after being dismissed on the first day of the fourth and final Test against South Africa at the Wanderers Stadium on Friday.

Stokes, the outstanding player in a series which England lead 2-1, stopped briefly as he left the field and appeared to challenge a spectator, who evidently insulted him after the player was out for two.

“Come say that to me outside the ground, you fucking four-eyed cunt,” Stokes said, according to television footage captured as he left the field and started to climb the steps leading to the dressing room.
