Senegalese soccer player Demba Ba suffered a grievous injury during a Chinese Super League match on July 17. On the Shanghai field, the striker, who plays for Shanghai Greenland Shenhua, became *entangled with Shanghai SIPG defender Sun Xiang. Sun’s boot hooked onto Ba’s leg, instantly snapping his limb. According to Xinhua News Agency, Ba is expected to rest for at least eight months. Sun issued an apology the next day on Sina Weibo. “I feel sincerely sorry... But I did not do this *maliciously,” Sun wrote.
