Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders suffered a huge hit in his teams loss to the St Louis Rams on Sunday.

In fact, Sanders had to withdraw from the game, such was the ferocity of the tackle from Rodney McLeod.

The tackle, which garnered a huge reaction on social media, even prompted an internet prankster to update Sanders' Wikipedia page - giving his date of death as Sunday, 16 November 2014.


But Sanders, who suffered a minor concussion from the tackle, responded with a picture of him surrounded by women at an event run by US television channel CBS4.

He posted a picture on Twitter of him surrounded by women that said: "Wikipedia said I died after the game last week... Well... I must be in heaven".

Sanders should be back for next Sunday's game at home to the Miami Dophins
