Yaya Toure falcons five-year-old girl

Yaya Toure is regarded as one of the most clinical finishers in world football, but the Manchester City superstar’s off-target strike at Loftus Road had painful consequences for a five-year-old girl in the crowd.

The Ivory Coast international’s shot curled just outside the top corner of the goal during City’s clash with QPR – and sconed little Chloe Power square in the face. Of course, it wouldn’t be right to laugh…but we’re only human – this is sporting comedy gold.


The tale had a happy postscript, with Chloe unharmed and later given signed shirts from both sides.

A relieved Toure also expressed his delight that he didn’t injure the youngster via Twitter.
