Manchester City knock over Premier League trophy

Manchester City took three weeks after winning the Premier League to get around to lifting the trophy, then they got a little too excited when the moment finally arrived.

City's players gathered on the podium behind the trophy after Sunday's draw at the Etihad Stadium, and they jumped around when club talisman Yaya Toure took the stage.

But Oleksandr Zinchenko inched a little too close to the trophy and sent it flying off its pedestal and crashing to the grass!

(Note how Yaya hits the ground at about the same time as the trophy!)

But the silverware stayed more or less in one piece, allowing captain Vincent Kompany and Toure to lift it in celebration.

It might still need a little fine-tuning, though, as Ilkay Gundogan joked on Twitter:

It might be your third trophy in seven years, City, but perhaps show a little more caution next time? Oh well, at least they didn't run it over with a bus.
