Oxford City goalkeeper Victor Francoz has injured himself while attempting to rescue a cat from a tree.
Yes, the Frenchman, perhaps trying to live up to Mr Incredible's standards, suffered a wound on his calf after he fell out of the tree during his heroics.
And the Lyon-born stopper, who came over to join the Conference North club from the United States, has returned to his homeland following the embarrassment.
Manager Mike Ford told the Oxford Mail: "It’s ridiculous. I’ve not got any sympathy for him at all because he’s done it to himself.
