Joe Hart made has mocked his own career after accidentally striking a Norwegian TV presenter with a ball.
Hart was warming up with goalkeeping coach Stevie Woods ahead of Celtic‘s clash against Shakhtar Donetsk in Poland on Wednesday when the incident occurred.
Part of the routine was to kick long balls to his coach but unfortunately one of Hart’s efforts went wayward and ended up striking presenter Ingrid Halstensen whilst live on air.
After the ball struck her, she pulled a surprised face but carried on her presenting duties like a true professional.
Hart immediately knew what had happened but was unable to grab her attention to offer his apologies as she was in the midst of carrying out her media duties.
But the former England goalkeeper didn’t pass up the chance to apologise in a post match interview with Halstensen where he also aimed a dig at himself.
“Oh yeah sorry, I was waving to say sorry but you didn’t turn around. Apologies,” Hart told TV2 Sport.
“Were you live at the time? Sorry. My goalie coach was literally five yards away. That’s why my career has gone where it has gone.”
