image for Footie descends into farce in Doha
Apparently it's loosely modelled on the Trevi....

Qatar - Did he fall or was he pushed? An unfortunate dunking in Qatar's equivalent of the Diana, Princess of Whales Memorial Fountain this evening saw Premier League chairman Sir David Richards wet himself all over in the Doha Shangri-La Hotel's decorative water feature.

Sir Dave had been addressing football bigwigs about the British origins of the beautiful game before a gala dinner with Fifa vice president Prince Ali Bin Hussein of Jordan and International Cricket Council CEO Haroon Lorgat.

The evening's feast was set to start at 7pm sharp when Richards and Bolton chair Phil Gartside stepped out from their suites and headed for the celebratory meal.

Suddenly a wrong-footed Richards found himself propelled head first off-side into the Shangri-La's ornamental fountain, dunking his expensive designer black tie ensemble in the cascade's recycled brackish waters.

Apparently 'someone had switched off the terrace lights' concealing the hotel pride and joy's murky depths and subjecting the Premiership ambassador to unspeakable farce.

"Bloody Armani suit's a total wreck," Gartside commiserated helpfully as he helped Richards out of the mire.

"Wanna see exclusive footage of the bellyflop, bound to cheer you up after all those Cheltenham losses, eh?"
