Argentine football star runs himself over

Valencia's Argentine football star Ever Banega will be out of action for around six months after reportedly being run over by his own car.

Sports daily Marca says the international midfielder had forgotten to apply the handbrake when he stopped at a petrol station following a training session with the Spanish club and his car rolled backwards over his foot.

A club spokesperson would only confirm that Banega had broken his left leg in a car accident and will undergo surgery on Monday.
