THE EDGE MAY have embarrassed himself by falling off the stage at a U2 gig last week, but this is a whole new ball game (pardon the pun).

After a match in Melbourne yesterday, Football Federation of Australia chairman Frank Lowy took a tumble off a podium set up in the middle of the pitch.

It really was quite the fall.

Oof! But don’t worry, he’s OK – according to The Guardian, Lowy had a sore shoulder but was otherwise unharmed. No mention of his pride, but we’re sure that’ll sort itself out.
