You don’t become a champion in any sport by eating any old crap – or maybe you do on the evidence provided by Serena Williams.
American Tennis superstar Williams revealed via Snapchat, that just hours before making the quarter-finals of the Italian Open she became ill after eating dog food.
‘Why?’ you may ask – well because she has a dog, it had some posh looking ‘doggy hotel’ food, and Serena Williams does whatever the hell she wants.
The 34-year-old explains all in this video:
As reported by the BBC, Williams did confess it had her running to the bathroom:
I thought ‘what the heck, I’m gonna try a piece, it looks good’.
Fast forward two hours, I just ran to the toilet like I thought I was going to pass out. It did taste weird. It tasted kind of like house cleaner.
She explained via her Snapchat story:
I force-swallowed it. I don’t know what they put in these dog foods, but Chip liked it.
I don’t think it’s consumable for humans. They should have wrote that! So now I feel really sick. It was just a spoonful, but I don’t feel so good.
Williams went on to defeat Christina McHale 7-6 (9-7), 6-1.
Popeye has spinach, Serena Williams has overpriced dog food for her three-year-old yorkie. Whatever works I guess…
