The Cinnamon challenge is passé. Giving someone a Cinnamon bath to celebrate his birthday. At least that’s how they do it in Denmark, as players of the Odense Boldklub gave Jeppe Hansen quite the treatment for this 25th birthday.
The striker was held down and showered with about 4 kilograms of cinnamon, as training stopped just so he could be pinned down and treated with the “respect” a birthday boy deserves.
To make matters worse, the problems weren’t over for Hansen. After losing in a card game to teammate Martin Spelmann, he agreed standing on the goalline with his back turned to the ball, drop his shorts and get a ball kicked at his exposed buttocks, according to the agreed punishment.
