Frank Lowy incredibly escaped without serious injury despite a dramatic fall from the stage as Melbourne Victory were presented with the A-League trophy in Australia last night.
The Australian Football Federation chairman was standing on a podium, preparing to take part in the ceremony of handing Victory the league trophy following their 3-0 win over Sydney FC in the final.
However, before Lowy was able to do so, he lost his footing and despite trying to hold onto the trophy to stop himself from falling, was unable to do so.
Despite such a heavy fall, the 84-year-old escaped serious injury.
Watch the incident below...
As the 29,000 crowd looked on at the AAMI Park, Lowy was treated by medics. He was well enough to return to the stage to complete the presentation before leaving the arena unassisted.Reuse content
