Rugby star apologizes for prank on British PM
September 18 , 2013
An Irish Lions rugby star, Manu Tuilagi apologized for playing a prank on British Prime Minister David Cameron yesterday.
Members of the team were invited to Cameron's official residence, where the management and the players posed for a photo to honor the Lion’s victory over Australia.
He tweeted saying, “Apologies for messing around on Lions photo. No offense intended. Great day at Downing Street. Thanks to Prime Minister for hosting us.”
Tuilagi had also done something similar two years ago at the World Cup when he was fined about $5,000. The fine came from the English Rugby Union and the player was even cautioned by the police after he jumped from a ferry following the elimination of England in the quarterfinals.
