Atletico Madrid Thomas Partey Has A Nightmare With Gift Car

Atletico Madrid Thomas Partey Has A Nightmare With Gift Car

Footballers are incredible because they manage to perform under extreme pressure every day but the pressure of running a car clearly got to Thomas Partey in front of his teammates at Atletico Madrid.

No one's pretending for a minute that what sports people do is braver than say a fireman or soldier or anything else like that but it certainly takes testicular fortitude to perform in front of baying fans and a worldwide audience every week.

Sports stars manage to do things that normal human beings couldn't all whilst under this insane pressure, and people shouting that they could do it better.

In fact there's only one thing that's better than watching something in sport go completely right and that is watching it go completely wrong.

Sure Raheem Sterling scoring a panenka penalty on Tuesday night would have been great but watching him put the ball over and Danny Ward laughing in his face was just that much better, unless you're a Manchester City fan of course.

Which of us doesn't love a total fail? Well even footballers enjoy them, especially when they happen to a teammate.

Atletico Madrid players were each being given a Hyundai car at the Wanda Metropolitano but Partey couldn't start his and then nearly drove into the advertising hoarding, his teammates were in hysterics:

It's not really related but it did make me think about my favourite sporting fail of the year and it has to go to Freddie Burns and the Heineken European Champions Cup.

Bath opened their campaign at the Rec against Toulouse. A good first 40 minutes saw them take a 17-12 lead but a second half converted try by Sofiane Guitoune and a penalty gave the French side a 20-22 lead.

With just five minutes to go Burns, having scored a try in the first half, broke free and as he celebrated ran under the sticks, only to drop the ball thanks to Maxime Medard's intervention:

Unsurprisingly the former England player was pretty unconsolable at the final whistle as Toulouse, the competition's most successful side, came away with the win:

I know they're human but when they really mess up like the rest of us it's wonderful.
