GIF It: John Terry grabs Carlos Puyol’s bad wrist (Chelsea 1-0 Barcelona)
Kids in Spanish schools get taught that England grinds to a halt every mid-afternoon while we all tuck into some cucumber sandwiches.
Carlos Puyol found out in the hardest way that the image of the stereotypical English gentlemen isn’t all it’s cracked up to be: he came face-to-face with John Terry.
Noting that Puyol was nursing a wrist injury, JT feigned interest in/some vague medical knowledge of the Barcelona skipper’s ailment before grabbing hold of the painful joint.
Quite what effect Terry thought this would have on a man who gets his head stapled on the touchline is unclear. To his credit, the Catalan masochist actually seemed to enjoy the little exchanged and mustered a wry smile.
