Don't keep your eye on the ball!
Medical correspondent Johan Tomst reports
Medical staff on Karatikus are distraught, thanks to a new sports craze. Known as 'Dart Tennis', the rules are complex, but boil down to the fact that being hit by a sharp, spiky object at high velocity is somewhat unpleasant. Only two deaths have resulted from the planet-wide phenomenon, but the increase in instances of minor surgery has been massive. Most worrying is the huge number of eye operations required, a result of the controversial new 'heading' rule. Optic Nerve stocks are extremely low, and more supplies are required urgently.
