Definition of irony, no.98648: David Beckham injures his right knee after colliding with advertising hoardings.

The incident happened during Real Madrid’s 1-1 draw with Getafe at the weekend. Becks miscued a cross near the goal line and ran into hoardings behind the goal. Doh. He will undergo a knee scan today, but looks 99% certain to miss Real’s vital Champions League return leg against Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

    Was it the glass wall he was painting on for Adidas? Like the invicible walls in computer games?

    Ha, that would be poignant Col!

    wouldn’t it only be ironic if it was an adidas, pepsi or brylcreem hoarding?! otherwise it’s just unfortunate

  4. Ollie, Pies Ed. says:

    Dan, I reckon it’s broadly ironic given Beckham’s general history of endorsements and adverts – but yes, you make a good point.
