Video: Rugby Sevens star celebrates 200th try by ruining €83,000 camera lens

The camera man must have been raging.

Kenyan sevens player Collins Injera may took his celebration of his 200th try a little bit too far by destroying a very expensive piece of equipment.

Injera scored landmark try for his country in a win over Japan at the London sevens at Twickenham, and decided to celebrate by signing a rugby ball.

After running in for a try, he produced a marker which he had apparently concealed in his sock for the entire game and scrawled his autograph on the ball.

However, he then followed it up by signing the camera with what turned out, and there's no prizes for guessing what type of marker it was. That's right, the permanent marker he left on the camera destroyed a lens which was worth around €83,000.

That was one expensive celebration.
