In your favourite story of the day, Carlos Tevez is facing a bit of a spell on the sidelines after picking up an injury playing football in prison.

The well-travelled striker has returned to Boca Juniors after his "seven-month holiday" in China with Shanghai Shenhua, scoring three goals in eight appearances in his third spell with his boyhood club.

Yet, mere months into joining again, the club are reportedly be furious with him. According to Clarin, the 34-year old is to be absent for more than a month after injuring his calf in a game of football in prison.

The story goes that the former Manchester United and Manchester City man was visiting his half-brother Juan Alberto Martinez, who is in the midst of serving a 16-year sentence for his role in an armed robbery, in Bouwer's maximum security prison in Cordoba.

During the visit, Tevez got involved in an impromptu kickabout with inmates but is said to have tore his calf muscle, ruling him out of action for at least a month - and meaning Boca will be without their talisman for several big league and Copa Libertadores games coming up.

No wonder Boca are fuming with him!

Tevez didn't leave on good terms in 2016, but in a press conference for his third move to the Argentine giants, claimed things would be different this time around.

"I know there are people who were annoyed by how I left, but that's normal," he said, as quoted by Goal.

"I was not in a position to give 100 per cent, but it was going to hurt the fans no matter what I did. Now the fans will see me again with the Boca shirt and they will be excited and happy."
