Extra Time: Norwegian player trains with painted face

The footballers at Norwegian club Sogndal, like many others, like to gamble and pick on losers.

That's the reason why 24-year-old striker Ulrik Flo, the nephew of former Chelsea star Tore Andre was forced to do a day in the office with his face painted after he lost a game of card with his colleagues.

The 24-year-old went through the motions of an ordinary training session, working both on the pitch and in the gym, but with his face adorned with a devilish design.

"It all went sour for me, and my punishment was to go to training with my face painted," he told NRK.

Having survived relegation by just a handful of points, Sogndal will be all the more eager to start the Tippeligaen with all guns blazing this weekend.
