Wigan’s James McArthur Refuses To Miss Big Match As Wife Goes Into Labour, Has Television Rigged Up At Hospital Bedside (Photo)

Soccer - Sky Bet Championship - Watford v Wigan Athletic - Vicarage Road

Despite his wife being fit to burst in a hospital bed, having her labour induced and generally teetering on the verge of delivering their child on Wednesday night, Wigan midfielder James McArthur made sure his priorities were in check by having a television screen rigged up next to her bed so he could watch the Champions League game between Arsenal and Bayern Munich while she faffed about with all that ‘push, push, push’ baby delivering malarkey…

Far be it from us to quibble, but surely Saving Private Ryan isn’t the most suitable film to watch as you’re about to give birth? Maybe we’re just old fashioned that way.

Still, it looks like it all went according to plan, with McArthur’s next Tweet proving as much…

Yep, that definitely looks like the face of a man who got to watch the football after all!

    “crying was a understatement”

    I don’t think it is. Unless he fell to his knees clawing at the foor. It’s a beautiful thing, all that placenta.
