Cross-dressing has its risks as Hong Kong international and Football Club fullback Mike McKee painfully discovered on Saturday night.

Swaying down the catwalk at the annual 'Miss Kowloon Night', McKee (pictured), who was dressed as a woman, was hit on the back of his head by a bottle thrown from the audience.

'Luckily he was not badly hurt. Mike was taken to hospital suffering from concussion,' said elder brother Peter. 'He was kept overnight as a precautionary measure but he is OK. He has a big bump on his head.' It was unclear if the incident was a case of amorous advances or if it was an old feud on the rugby field boiling over.

Earlier in the evening, both Mike and Peter McKee had been involved in Club's 22-7 victory over DeA Tigers which clinched the Sports Road team the First Division League Championship - their first in nine seasons.
