Despite taking place over four weeks ago, the game between the Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks is still having an effect on the hands of Kam Chancellor.

The Seahawks star was on the winning team in temperatures that reached -20°C in Minnesota. It was one of the coldest games in NFL history.

Chancellor and his side were knocked out the following week by Carolina, and despite the fortnight's rest, his hands are still damaged from the sub-zero temperatures, he and his side faced in the game.

He claims his hands have "iguana-skin" after the game with the skin continuing to peel off the top of his fingers. It's not the prettiest sight in the World.
