Footballer dies after goal celebration

Horrific news out of India, where a lower-division footballer has lost his life after a goal celebration went wrong.

Peter Biaksangzuala, 23, scored for his club Bethlehem Vengthlang FC then attempted a double backflip in the style of Miroslav Klose.

He landed directly on his neck, though, breaking his spinal column, and was rushed to hospital, where he passed away five days later.

Watch the shocking footage of the incident here.
