It’s the YouTube sensation which took place at Pompey’s training ground.

And today former Blues manager, Harry Redknapp, has relived the famous incident where he was struck by a ball while he gave a television interview.

Redknapp turned the air blue at his team’s Eastleigh training base in 2003, when a wayward shot from an Academy player hit him on the head.

This time it’s former England manager, Glenn Hoddle, who’s to blame as he hits Redknapp with a golf ball in a light-hearted recreation of the incident to mark Redknapp joining Twitter.
