Charlie Morgan was a ball boy for Swansea football club. In 2013, during a league match between Chelsea and Swansea, no one even thought that such a bizarre incident could happen. All of a sudden, Chelsea forward Eden Hazard kicked the ball boy because he was holding the ball to ‘help’ Swansea. It was intense. It gave the forward a red card for that nasty event.
