Rio Ferdinand, who is doing commentary for the BBC during the World Cup, was having a bit of fun on twitter Sunday morning at England Physio Gary Lewin's expense. Lewin had taken a knock during the celebrations of Daniel Sturridge's equaliser, and Rio couldn't resist the opportunity to tease him for it.


He continued...

Unfortunately for Ferdinand, the injury was more serious than he thought. In fact, The Guardian report that Lewin actually dislocated his ankle.

Upon realising his error, Ferdinand immediately tweeted an apology for the mistake.
