The football side of Twitter went into absolute meltdown on Sunday for a not-so-good reason. Former Newcastle and Chelsea player Demba Ba broke his leg while playing in China and the images and video of the incident are not for the faint hearted.
Legs, simply, are not meant to bend like that and this particular injury looks absolutely horrific.
Ba was playing for Shanghai Shenhua in the Chinese Super League derby when the injury occurred.

You wouldn’t wish a leg break on your worst enemy. We wish Demba Ba the very best of luck with his recovery and that the 31-year-old has a speedy return to health.
