CYCLIST BITTEN BY MONKEY

Italian champion cyclist Paolo Bettini, who won the prestigious
Liege-Bastogne-Liege race last year, was bitten by a female monkey while
training on Wednesday.

Bettini was bitten while training in Malaysia for the Tour of Langkawi,
Bettini's Mapei team said.

Bettini and a group of riders were giving the monkey some sweets when,
after a brusque movement by Bettini, it got scared and bit him on the left
knee.

The Mapei rider was given antibiotics as a precaution after medical
advice.

Before you criticize a man you should walk a mile in his shoes.  
That way you are a mile away from him and you have his shoes.
