Coach Eddie Jones has been mischievously given a non-slip bathroom mat by his England rugby squad to mark his 57th birthday.

Jones was presented with the gift by defence coach Paul Gustard at the Grand Slam champions' Surrey training base, after attending last week's Six Nations launch with a heavily-bruised left eye.

The Australian claimed to have slipped in the bathroom of his hotel, while exiting the shower to fetch his razor, requiring a nasty wound above his cheekbone to be dressed.

Jones is a former coach of Australia's Wallabies and led Japan at the 2015 Rugby World Cup
