The politicians who serve us may have had their glory days playing sports, but those days are long gone and trying to play sports in your older years only equals one thing: A barrel of laughs. However, one way for politicians to connect with people is through sports, which these folks from Capital Hill and beyond all attempted. Do you think the following politicians still have it? Or are their glory days a thing of the past?
Boris the Bull Gets Carried Away in a Game of Rugby
In 2014, former London Mayor Boris Johnson went to Tokyo on a trade visit. He just happened to catch a game of rugby. Johnson then decided to play some rugby with a group of kids. Can you guess what happened from the image?
Let’s get one thing straight. First of all, this is not the WWE. This is not what you call a shoulder block either. The child that you see in this image, Toki Sekiguchi, was 10 years old at the time and he just happened to be in the way of Boris the bull. You can guess what happened next as poor little Toki ended up on the ground. Johnson apologized for the unfortunate tackle immediately afterward, and Johnson gave Toki a rugby ball.
