Wales international having ‘holiday from hell’
Wales international Jake Ball is having the ‘holiday from hell’ as he and his baby are both suffering from hand, foot and mouth disease.
The 26-year-old lock, capped 26 times by Wales, suffered a disappointing end to the season with the Scarlets being forced out of their Pro12 final victory over Munster in Dublin with a shoulder injury.
The problem also kept the Ascot-born second row out of Wales’ summer Tests with Tonga and Samoa.
Ball is currently on holiday in Cyprus with Thomson holidays and tweeted his displeasure with the company.
We hope he gets his money back plus more!
Hand, foot and mouth disease is a common infection that causes mouth ulcers and spots on the hands and feet.
It’s most common in young children – particularly those under 10 – but can affect older children and adults as well.
Hand, foot and mouth disease can be unpleasant, but it will usually clear up by itself within 7 to 10 days. You can normally look after yourself or your child at home.
The infection can be spread by close person to person contact and contact with contaminated surfaces.
