When the trophy ceremony goes wrong

Football Federation of Australia chairman Frank Lowy avoids serious injury after falling off the stage as he was presenting the A-League trophy.

Despite the acrobatic tumble 84-year-old Lowry managed to smile and made a heroic comeback shortly afterwards to hand over the silverware to Melbourne Victory.

Melbourne won a third A-League title after their 3-0 victory over Sydney FC.
