HOW ENGLAND STRIKER, CARLTON COLE TOOK SEX PERFORMANCE ENHANCING DRUG, VIAGRA, IN CAMP

Former West Ham star Carlton Cole has revealed the bizarre story of being tricked into taking Viagra while on England duty.

According to UK newspaper, Daily Mail, the former striker featured for the Three Lions just seven times throughout his career but that certainly didn’t stop his England team-mates from playing pranks on him in the cruelest of ways. 

Cole took the blue pill thinking it was a vitamin but when it kicked in, he was forced to train with an erection.

The 36-year-old, on his Footballers Guide to Football podcast, said: ‘The stonker was there. I wasn’t sexually aroused but it was just there. I was the quickest person around that pitch — I had three legs.’  

Jermain Defoe was a podcast guest and Cole joked: ‘I had erased that from my memory — you’re bringing back bad memories.’ 

The then-West Ham forward was pranked by Defoe, Wayne Rooney and Shaun Wright-Phillips following his call-up to the England team for their match against Holland back in 2009.

Carlton was always smiley, happy and that, so we just thought, if you are going to get anyone, who would take it?’ Defoe said.

‘He just took it because he was thinking, “Oh yeah, vitamins, good for my body”. I was in stitches. It was the funniest thing. When we told him after… his face!

‘And there’s nothing he could do. I thought, “You’re going to have to deal with this for a few hours, my friend”. Oh my God.’

Fortunately for Cole, then-England manager Fabio Capello never found out, Defoe revealed.
