‘Did his hammy’


To tear a hamstring muscle causing pain and most likely an injury lay-off resulting in a 2-3 week absence, possibly longer unless you are Alexis Sanchez.

Give me an example:

‘Alexis did his hammy after playing 5 matches in 2 days but was fit again to play in the Gunnersaurus XI Testimonial match that took place two hours before Arsenal played Tottenham in the title decider. Aaron Ramsey also did his hammy. He missed the next three seasons.’
