Newcastle's Rafa Benitez dons shorts while training in sub-zero blizzard

Despite the north east of England being currently engulfed by freezing blizzards, Rafa Benitez didn't appear to be phased by the sub-zero conditions at Newcastle's training centre.

While most of his players and staff were wrapped up warm in tights, scarves, gloves and hats, Newcastle boss Benitez proved his mettle by taking the session in shorts.

Hardy, bare-legged and seemingly impervious to the cold, the former Liverpool, Chelsea and Real Madrid manager has obviously become a true Geordie during his two-year tenure at Newcastle.

That said, there's a fine line between toughness and insanity!

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
