One Direction's Niall Horan Accidentally Smacks Himself In The Face With A Basketball (VIDEO)

One Direction singer Niall Horan may be a millionaire pop star but sadly he can’t enjoy the luxury the rest of us can in being able to brush off an embarrassing moment, instead when the star suffers a red-faced moment, it’s recorded on video.

While the band continue their tour in Sydney footage of the Irish star playing basketball has been uploaded to YouTube and shows him bouncing a basketball. In fact he throws it so hard that it comes flying back up and smacks him in the face.

Ever the pro he styled out the incident by pushing up his sunglasses and leaving the scene. If it makes him feel any better, this was pretty minor in comparison to his band mate, Liam Payne’s trauma.

This week two fans pinched his pants from his hotel balcony while Louis Tomlinson also engaged in a Twitter spat with Nick Grimshaw.

Whatever will the boys get up to next?
