Hilarious moment England legend hits golf ball into own face

England cricket great James Anderson has been brutally trolled by one of his own teammates after hilarious footage captured the fast bowler hitting a golf ball into his own face.

Anderson was ‘enjoying’ a round of golf with fellow quick Stuart Broad when he found himself in a spot of bother underneath trees, well wide of the fairway.

Broad decided to film his England teammate’s attempt to bash the ball clear from its treacherous lie.

The resulting footage was hilarious, embarrassing and seemingly very painful for the greatest wicket-taker in England history.

Anderson let rip with a full-blooded swing of his iron but the ball appeared to ricochet off a tree root and fly back into the side of his face.

“Oh no, oh my god!” Broad could be heard saying off camera as Anderson wheeled away in shock.

Showing true compassion for his fast-bowling comrade, Broad did what any good mate would and posted the clip of the hilarious blooper on social media.

Broad prefaced the post by revealing that Anderson was “perfectly fine,” before adding a series of laughing emojis for good measure.
