Watch Joe Hart think he's about to be hit by a baseball

As a man who gets paid to have balls kicked towards him for a living, we’ve no doubts over Joe Hart’s reflexes, nor his ability to stay cool under pressure. He told us all about it this week.

But when those balls happen to be baseball shaped – well let’s just say he’s not completely unflappable. In fact, judging by this new video, he’s about as flappable as it gets.

The Manchester City star and some of his teammates were enjoying a day out with the Toronto Bluejays during the club’s post-season US tour when professional slugger José Bautista decided to let a few of the footballers step into the batting cage. One mistimed swing saw a ball fly backwards. Step forward Joe Hart.

Not realising there was a net, and sensing a smack in the face, Hart panicked, arched backwards like Neo in The Matrix and let out a mighty yell, sending the rest of the guys into a fit of hysterics - and James Milner howling like a hyena, which has well and truly tickled us.

Check out the clip below, before reading our interview with Hart about his all time XI right here.
