‘Drunk’ ice hockey goalie still gets the job done

An amateur ice hockey match in the Czech Republic became big news when an apparently drunk goalie took to the ice - and a video of him doing so went viral across the internet.

Our man between the sticks was seen wobbling all over the place and indeed, if he didn't have the goal right there to lean on, then he might have landed on his bottom on more than the two occasions he did so in the short clip.

However, when called into duty, he somehow managed to focus the mind and made a superb save.

It works for this guy, but the last thing we would want to do here at World of Sport is encourage you to compete in sport while under the influence.

Let's us remind you of this classic footage from 2008 when high-jump star Ivan Ukhov tried to compete while drunk.

Ukhov showed the benefits of sobriety though, because after cleaning up his act, he went on to win gold at London 2012.
