Barcelona’s Carlos Puyol gets his head stapled pitchside
Fans of football hardmen and stationery alike, you’re going to love this video.
Barcelona skipper Carlos Puyol was ordered off the pitch with blood coming from a gash on his head during his side’s win over Real Zaragoza. He was not going to be kept out of action for too long though.
Puyol took a grassy pew on the touchline while the Barca medical staff took a stapler to his head. He barely even blinked.
After the match, he tweeted a picture of the staple that had held his head together before hole-punching a nipple piercing for himself and using a compass to dig out a troublesome splinter from his hand.
