Kenyan rugby player ruins $94,000 camera with his signature

Monday May 18th, 2015

Kenyan rugby player Collins Injera was understandably excited to score his 200th career try during Sunday's London Seven victory over Japan. 

Injera must be a fan of Terrell Owens, because he celebrated by taking a marker out of his sock and signing the ball. Then he mimicked the popular tennis celebration of signing the television camera's lens.

There's only one problem: in tennis you don't sign the actual lens. Rather than render an expensive piece of equipment totally useless, tennis players sign a protective covering on top of the lens. Injera signed the glass, completely ruining the lens. That'll cost £60,000 ($94,000) to replace, according to ESPN
