Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, is not a small man. Just a little something he should have maybe considered before enthusiastically shoulder-barging a 10-year-old kid during a game of street rugby.

"I felt a little bit of pain but it's OK," the student, Toki Sekiguchi, told the TelegraphIt was "enjoyable" meeting the mayor, he said.

The rugby game marked the end of Johnson's three-day trade visit to Japan, during which he talked about the country hosting the Rugby World Cup in 2019.

Apparently this is not the first time that he's taken a small child down during a casual game. Last year, he apologized after tripping a nine-year-old kid during a friendly soccer game in London, sending him flying to the ground.

Dear Boris: Maybe just don't play sports with children anymore?
