English soccer club Tottenham Hotspur had barely started its match with Turkish team Beşiktaş when the floodlights went out on Thursday.
The teams were playing a group stage game in the Europa League, which is one of the highest international titles a soccer club can win in Europe.
With the lights out, fans stepped up to illuminate Istanbul's Atatürk Olimpiyat Stadium with their phones, creating a series of beautiful photos captured by Getty Images.
