It’s a soccer nightmare!

Fiery reality cooking show personality Gordon Ramsay was carried off the field on a stretcher during the annual Soccer Aid game in Manchester, England, on Sunday, May 27. A solid tackle by former pro player Teddy Sheringham sent Gordon to the ER with back pain. Fortunately, the celebrity chef is already back home recuperating. "Thx 4 all the messages. Out of hospital after receiving amazing care from medics at ground & hospital. Bit sore but fine," Gordon tweeted the following day.

Other stars participating in the rough-and-tumble event included James McAvoy, Gerard Butler, Mike Myers, Will Ferrell, and Woody Harrelson. Together they raised over $6 million for UNICEF.

We’re sure Gordon had some choice words — “oh, fiddlesticks” or “you meanie” — for the soccer star who plowed into him.
