Beloved British olympic boxer Audley Harrison has been hospitalised today. Harrison was found in his hotel room early today, reportedly having taken of an overdose of popular energy drink Lucozade sport.

Though doctors have not yet released an official statement, it is thought that the overdose of the drink caused Harrison to enter an extremely hyperactive state, in which he accidentally ran very fast into one of the walls of his hotel room.

Harrison, achieved his lifelong dream of winning an Olympic gold medal in 2000.

Since the incident news has been flooding in from parents across the country reporting similar incidents with their children and the dangerous drink, leading campaigners and lobbyists the world over to call for an immediate investigation into the drink.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
