On Sunday, the Melbourne Victory became the latest champions of the Football Federation Australia after beating Sydney FC 3-0. However, during the trophy ceremony, most of the attention was understandably fixed on FFA Chairman Frank Lowy.
Lowy, an 84-year-old man, took a spill off the stage that looked pretty scary considering that, well, Lowy is an 84-year-old man.

Luckily, paramedics were on hand and Lowy was OK, suffering only a sore shoulder from his fall.
Statement: Mr Lowy received treatment from paramedics on the scene and was cleared of any serious injury. He has soreness in the shoulder.

Lowy was able to get back onto the stage and continue with the festivities.
