An ice hockey team announced an injury to their star player by posting a photograph of her naked on the treatment table. Yulia Ushakova, who plays for HC Spartak Moscow, Russia, stripped down to the bare minimum to show off her bandaged ankle.
The club tweeted the saucy snap to their official Twitter page and it racked up over 3,000 retweets.
Spartak risked backlash from their fans, but the stunning blonde decided to share the image with her huge army of Instagram followers on Monday.
Alongside the controversial picture, the former bodybuilder wrote: “I twisted my ankle, two broken nails.
“My wrist will be corrected, and when I go for the manicure, the problem will be solved. I started the week badly.
“I will solve the ‘women’s problems’ in terms of the degree of significance, first I’ll remove the wrinkles, then to the manicure. And the ankle itself will pass.
“Let’s see how cosmetics works @celltense_russia. To all, a cool and positive start to the week!”
And she confirmed on social media on Thursday that she had recovered well and should be fit to play the next game.
The stunning blonde added: “The ankle has recovered well, everything in order.
