DEFENCE force chief Angus Houston has a broken wrist. He fell over while wearing cycling shoes - those ones with special pedal-clips that make the wearer's feet clatter along the pavement - and now has his arm in a sling.
This is dreadful. Not the injury; Houston is so tough he barely noticed the pain and kept cycling for 30km before seeking medical attention. The real problem is the idea of our top defender clopping around like My Little Pony in his special bike shoes every day.
