It was supposed to be a friendly affair, but Will Ferrell and Gordon Ramsay got more than they bargained for – the latter ended up in hospital – at a charity soccer game on Sunday that was rougher than anticipated.
The actor, 44, hobbled off with an apparent leg injury, while the celebrity chef, 45, had to be stretchered off and given oxygen after a clattering tackle by former pro player Teddy Sheringham at the annual Soccer Aid game in Manchester, England.
“Thx 4 all the messages. Out of hospital after receiving amazing care from medics at ground & hospital. Bit sore but fine,” Ramsay wrote Monday on Twitter.
Ferrell’s status was not known.
Woody Harrelson, Ed Norton, Mike Meyers and Gerard Butler also participated in the game, held at Manchester United’s home field of Old Trafford.
Still, no pain, no gain – the match did raise more than $6.4 million for the children’s charity UNICEF.
