All in the game


Goalkeeper's foul sidelines the president
(Filed: 01/08/2006)

Evo Morales, the Bolivian president, broke his nose at the weekend when he was fouled by a goalkeeper during an indoor football match and will be sidelined for 48 hours, his office said yesterday.
Mr Morales, a passionate player and fan, was injured during a game in the central city of Cochabamba between his presidential team and a local squad, the Independence Warriors.
"In the game's 32nd minute, with the score tied 2-2, the local team's goalkeeper committed a foul against the President of the Republic that produced the injury to his nose," a statement from his office said.
Mr Morales, who is known for his trademark hooped sweater, was treated at a local clinic and instructed to rest for two days.
He was inaugurated as Bolivia's first Indian president in January.
