Tuesday 22 February 2011
In an incident more sex, drugs and rock n roll than afternoon tea and cucumber sandwiches, cricketer Ricky Ponting stands accused of smashing up a television set.
It has emerged that following the Australian captain's dismissal in their opening World Cup game against Zimbabwe, he returned to the dressing room and smashed an LCD TV with his bat.
Ponting can take consolation in that he's not the first sportsman to lose it when things weren't going his way, as this collection of angry sports stars proves.
