Australian Soccer

width="230"The A-League Grand Final had a scary moment when Frank Lowy took a huge tumble, nearly bringing the trophy with him. But the 84-year-old billionaire is okay.

Frank Lowy, the 84-year-old chairman of Football Federation Australia, was trying to give the A-League's trophy to the Melbourne Victory after their 3-0 win in the league's Grand Final. Instead, the 84-year-old took an enormous fall off the stage:

Falls are often pretty scary for older folks, and the crowd, which had reportedly booed Lowy earlier in the proceedings, fell silent as paramedics tended to the 84-year-old. But somehow Lowy is all right - an FFA spokesman said the only injury suffered is a sore shoulder - and the trophy ceremony resumed after just a two-minute delay.

Lowy, a self-made billionaire ranked as Australia's richest person in 2010, has been credited with helping revitalize soccer in Australia - he took over as FFA chairman in 2003 and the A-League was founded in 2005.

Several Getty Images photographers captured the fall frame-by-frame:
