Bundesliga history-maker Steinhaus 'relieved' after landmark moment

Bibiana Steinhaus made history as she took charge of the 1-1 draw between Hertha Berlin and Werder Bremen on Sunday to become the first female referee in Bundesliga history.

The 38-year-old police officer, who officiated matches in the 2. Bundesliga for 10 years before being appointed to the country’s premier competition, issued just one yellow card as the game passed without controversy.
