It doesn't matter what the sport is, there will likely be some flopping. And with the world's most popular sport being played on the world's biggest stage, the art of the flop (or dive) has been on full display.
While flopping tends to drive most sports fans (and some commentators) insane, some of the biggest athletes in the world continue to embellish contact or exaggerate an injury to gain an advantage. The NBA got so fed up with it that it created an anti-flopping policy, but fining players thousands of dollars hasn't seemed to dissuade some of them from flopping. It's no secret that flopping has been prevalent in soccer for a while, to the point where it has basically become an accepted part of the game (even though soccer fans around the world disapprove).
