s1mple shows middle finger to FURIA fans after elimination from IEM Rio Major 2022

After losing to FURIA at IEM Rio Major 2022, NAVI's leader Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev got into a verbal altercation with Brazilian fans in the arena, who were shown the middle finger. This happened when NAVI players were leaving for the room under the stands.

The gesture of the Ukrainian was captured on the stream, on numerous videos from fans, and the photo was posted by ESL photographer Luc Bouchon on his Twitter page.

Kostyliev did not explain who he addressed his gesture to and what caused such a reaction. At the same time, he drew attention to the inappropriate behavior of some fans and, in particular, said that after the first map, someone from the audience spat at one of the NAVI players.

NAVI lost 1:2 to FURIA in the quarterfinals of IEM Rio Major 2022 and finished the tournament in 5-8th place.
