Too much sex blamed for injuries

Too much sex has been blamed for a Serie A football star’s wretched run with injury.

AC Milan midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng has missed a significant portion of the season with a variety of injuries and is expected to miss at least the next month – much to the delight of his swimsuit model girlfriend.

"The reason why he is always injured is because we have sex 7-10 times a week," Sports Illustrated model Melissa Satta, said.

"I hate foreplay, I want to get straight to the point. My favourite position is on top so I can take control."

The reason behind Boateng’s predicament may be the envy of many men, but it is unlikely former AC Milan gun Christian Vieri would feel sorry for him.

Vieri dated Satta for five years prior to Boateng.
