A polish man has been forced to face facts that some men shouldn’t iron.

Tomasz Paczkowski has a face full of bandages after mistaking a hot iron for the telephone.

The 32-year-old told Polish newspaper Fakt his wife had left for work when he began ironing while watching television.

"After breakfast I started to work. I turned on the boxing channel on the TV, opened a beer and started ironing.

"I was really getting involved in the boxing and was not really thinking about what I was doing.”

Mr Paczkowski says the phone suddenly rang and, in a rush, he picked up the wrong instrument.

"Instead of grabbing the receiver I picked up the iron and put it to my ear." 

He ran to the bathroom to cool his face and was later treated by a doctor.

Mr Paczkowski says despite resembling a battered boxer, he will continue his fight with the iron.
