The javelin was never her strongest event but last night, while watching Arsenal’s Champions League game against Barcelona, former Olympian heptathlete Kelly Sotherton proved she’s got a decent arm on her nevertheless…
So frustrated was Sotherton when the Gunners’ Matthieu Flamini gave away a penalty against the Spanish giants that she hurled her remote control at the TV, hitting it with such force that the device embedded itself in the screen.

She did, however, see the irony in pulling out such an impressive throwing performance years after retiring from athletics…

The question now is, will Flamini be stumping up for a new TV…?
