Television host Piers Morgan was left with more than bruised pride after facing a blistering over from former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee during the Boxing Day Test match.
After questioning the current England top-order’s ability to handle proper fast-bowling via his Twitter account, the former Britain’s Got Talent judge was challenged to face Three Lions’ tormentor Mitchell Johnson.
When the left-armer was denied the chance, Lee stepped up for his country and proceeded to pepper Morgan with six short and hostile bouncers, several of which struck him hard, despite having plenty of protective equipment.
However, the barrage became an internet hit as the disliked Morgan backed away from five balls hurled by Lee, with Morgan showing the damage of one thunderbolt, with a fractured rib coming his way for his trouble.
fanatix thinks some of his detractors would have preferred to see him with a broken jaw rather than a busted rib.
