A peculiar fashion for dealing with frustration seems to be taking over the summer's sporting events - headbutting. Although deplorable, Zidane's actions were at least in response to a verbal attack - unlike an angry jockey this weekend, who was caught on camera headbutting his horse. Yahoo News reports that Paul O'Neill headbutted the horse in anger after falling from the steed. O’Neill has since apologized saying: “ I would just like to say to the public that I’m very sorry they had to see such a thing. I’ve never done it before and it will never happen again.” RSPCA officials have described O’Neill’s behaviour as stupid and unacceptable.”
