In terms of footballers injuring themselves in bizarre ways, Le Buzz thought we’d heard it all.

From Santiago Canizares dropping a bottle of aftershave on his foot to Liam Lawrence tripping over his dog and falling down the stairs.

But Marco Asensio may have just raised the bar as he was ruled out of Real Madrid’s opening Champions League match due to an infected pimple that means he can’t pull his socks up over his legs.

It has been reported that this came about when he was shaving his legs. The story was the source of much mirth on social media.
