The video shows the bees hovering around a helmet and groundskeepers using a fire extinguisher in an attempt to get rid of them.

Photos showed players hitting the ground to avoid getting stung. It’s unclear whether anyone did get stung. Play resumed shortly after the groundskeepers were able to get rid of the bees.
