After the man from Dordrecht had thrown the stone, the officer lost control of the vehicle. He sustained multiple injuries and had to be treated by paramedics. The officer in the co-driver’s seat was able to just avoid an accident, because he managed to grab the steering wheel.

Water cannon and dozens of arrests
The Classic was played without an audience due to the corona measures. Yet it was packed with supporters at De Kuip. When the team buses of Feyenoord and Ajax arrived, a lot of heavy fireworks were set off. That was also thrown at cops. Rioters also pulled stones from the street to throw. In all, 64 people were arrested.
