It was an undignified death made worse by an attempt to justify it
Tragedy struck during Arsenal’s 1–0 win over Leicester when a Christian Fuchs throw-in struck Alex Sanchez at point-blank range, killing him, well, not instantly, but after a brief delay. He was 28 years old. He was also shown a yellow card.
After the match, the ghost of Alex Sanchez posted a pair of images to his Twitter account: one showing off a drop of blood (or maybe a drop of Sriracha?) on his swollen lip and the other of him holding a comically large ice pack to his mouth.
Feliz por la victoria pero termine con el labio hinchado happy for the victory but ended up with a swollen lip ⚽️
Our thoughts and prayers are with Alexis’ dogs, Atom and Humber, at this trying time.
