`Someone seems to have gone out of their way to cause people genuine harm by placing six footballs on the capital’s streets and a sign asking people to kick them. The catch? The balls were filled with concrete.
“Can u kick it?” was written on a poster near the innocuous looking footballs. So, probably without thinking too long about it, two young guys, aged 21 and 23, took up the challenge and gave the balls a good kick. Unfortunately the leather balls had been filled with concrete and weighed around 10kg each. The men sustained foot injuries so severe that they had to go to hospital.’
