Rugby Union star Danny Cipriani is recovering in hospital after being hit by a double-decker bus on a pub crawl in Leeds last night.
The 25-year-old was out drinking with his Sale Sharks team-mates when he ran across a road and "misjudged the speed of the bus," his manager told the Sun.
He was treated for concussion and spent the night in hospital having X-rays and scans carried out.
Witnesses said on Twitter that the entire windscreen of the bus was shattered and that a number of police cars were present.
Cipriani's manager James Williamson told The Sun:
– James Williamson, manager
Danny’s spending the night in hospital. X-rays and scans will be carried out overnight.
He’s obviously in pain. He was running across the road and just misjudged the speed of the bus.
Many of the players were reportedly dressed as characters from the Wizard of Oz and pictures from earlier in the evening appear to show Cipriani with a painted face.
Reports suggested the Premiership players were nearing the end of the Otley Run pub crawl - a popular route that takes in 14 pubs along the Otley Road in Leeds, finishing in The Dry Dock.
Cipriani's team-mate Will Addison tweeted at the start of the evening:
And so it begins!!! #chaos
Another team-mate, Johnny Leota tweeted earlier in the evening asking for advice on where to buy fake jewellery for a 'Mr T' costume:
Places to get plastic jewelry for mr t costume is???
