For the wrong reasons...
Lebanese footballer Mohamed Ghaddar has become a web sensation for all the wrong reasons after producing a comically inept piece of 'skill' in a Malaysian league game.
Faced with an opponent on the left flank, Kelantan FA striker Gheddar attempts a flurry of stepovers supposed to evoke the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar - but he ends up looking more like a tipsy line dancer.
That was taken from Yahoo UK's (Eurosport) website. The video on YouTube has more than 3 million hits since it was uploaded on May 22, 2012.
Meanwhile, in a regrettable development, the Media officer, Satwant Dhaliwal, has quit consequent an altercation with a Malaysian coach over seating in the media box.
The coach insisted on sitting in the reserved media area citing the chairs were unoccupied. Finding the official response indifferent to his complaint, Mr. Dhaliwal stepped down.
With some tact the incident could have been avoided. In the end, it has left a bitter taste among the national and international media personnel, who are here for the event.
This was featured in India's The Hindu website as they reported about the on-going Sultan Azlan Shah Cup hockey tournament in Ipoh.
