Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng suffered a thigh injury during last weekend's 1-0 loss to Inter. But according to his SI bodypaint model girlfriend, it wasn't the football that hurt him, it was all the sex they have.

Claims SuperSport:

Melissa Satta, who Kevin-Prince has been dating for a while, described their sex life and attributed that to his niggles. Melissa Satta said: "The reason why he is always injured is because we have sex 7-10 times a week"

AC Milan have not commented on the matter, but they did issue a statement to validate his injury. [...]

A statement from the Rossoneri read: "Boateng has sustained a muscular lesion in his left thigh and the estimated time of recovery is around four weeks, unless there are complications."

Though scientists have repeatedly stated that sex before athletic competition is not bad, Ms. Satta may have just proven them wrong. Or she just really wanted an excuse to tell everyone how much sex they have. If that is what's causing Boateng's injuries, then I'm sure he doesn't mind, since not being able to play only means he has more time to increase his injury risk.
