Proteas' bowler Steyn battling seaside bluebottle stings.

Cape Town, Dec 21(ANI): South African bowler Dale Steyn has been stung by bluebottles on the seaside, ahead of South Africa's second Test against Sri Lanka at Durban.

But he knows well how to tackle this "emergency".

"Happy to say I just peed all over my arm and leg! Bluebottle stings burn like fire!" Sport 24 quoted his tweet, as saying

According to the legend, immediate urination on bluebottle stings eases the pain but medicos dispute it.

South Africa have had some extra time off to relax after wrapping up Sri Lanka within three days in the first Test at Centurion due to Vernon Philander's 10-wicket haul and Steyn's six- wicket haul for 54. (ANI)
