Hi, everyone:

If a football player fakes a fall, then it's called a ______.

I wonder what a sports commentator for the match will call it. Is it a "diving"?

Best wishes

    Dive is definitely right, but the technical term being used these days in football circles in simulation, so it could also be correct. Note though that it's jargon rather than a widely-understood term.
