Zinedine Zidane's body double got genuinely smashed filming a rugby ad in 2008

Was I not meant to do that? 

You've probably seen French football great Zinedine Zidane score this try in a charity match this week against a Toulon team.




And you may remember this rather good rugby ad from 2008, in which Zidan takes up professional rugby with mixed results. 



However you probably don't know what happened to Zidan's body double in that ad, who had to stand in for the hits. Well, let's just say that on one occasion, and after a genuine mistake, he really did earn his money.
