Footballer Gets Huge Hole In His Knee After Landing On Gigantic Nail

The central defender suffered his bizarre injury in last Friday's 1-0 home win over Atletico San Luis after an opponent's challenge near his goalline.

Luckless Bilbao fell on to an advertising banner, impaling himself on a metal pin used to fix it to the turf.

No date has yet been given for his return to action.
