He's known for his aggression in the kitchen and is a former Scottish amateur soccer player, but Hell's Kitchen chef Gordon Ramsay ended up flat on his back at a charity soccer match on Sunday, reports People.

The Michelin-starred restaurateur took part in a pro-celebrity game on behalf of the charity Soccer Aid in Manchester, England. He was tackled hard by former England national star Teddy Sheringham and had to be administered with oxygen on the sidelines before being taken to a local hospital. Tweeting to his fans on Monday, Ramsay wrote, "Thx 4 all the messages. Out of hospital after receiving amazing care from medics at ground & hospital. Bit sore but fine."

Another casualty of the supposedly friendly game was actor Will Ferrell, who apparently sustained a leg injury. Despite the injuries, the match, which also featured Woody Harrelson, Mike Myers and Ed Norton, raised $6.4 million for charity.
