Karachi:

Pakistan captain Younis Khan was on Thursday forced to skip a pre-scheduled media discussion session in the city after being bitten by an erst of honey bees outside his home.

The freak accident took place early this morning when the cricketer was taking his car out of the garage as the honey bees attacked him leaving his face swollen in just a few minutes.

"My face is swollen. So I can't speak freely. Because of this incident I also reached late for a local match which I had to miss today," Younis said later.

Younis did, however, manage to show up for a Iftaar (fast breaking) party at the Karachi Press Club which was arranged in his honour.

"I should be okay in a couple of days. I don't think this incident will have any effect on my preparation for the coming Champions Trophy," he said.
