Medical staff have told how a man was admitted to a Johannesburg hospital this morning with a vuvuzela protruding out of his arse.
The local man, who had been blowing his 'horn' at the South Africa v. Uruguay game, had, apparently, been attacked by a group of high-spirited Uruguayans who were out celebrating their team's 3-0 victory.
One doctor at the Daktari Medical Centre said:
"It's the first time we've seen this kind of injury, but as the World Cup gets into its later stages, I'm sure we'll be seeing many more of them."
A nurse treating the injured man, told us:
"I don't like vuvuzelas. If it weren't for the plain fact that my job is a nurse, and that I am here to help people in severe distress, and to save lives, I'd have shoved the fucking thing up his arse myself!"
