(Newser) – Rugby player Manu Tuilagi has apologized to British Prime Minister David Cameron after punking him with bunny ears during a photo at Downing Street yesterday. Members of the Lions were invited to the PM's official residence following their 2-1 series victory over Australia this summer. The center took to Twitter to apologize, writing: "Apologies for messing around on Lions photo. No offence intended. Great Day at Downing Street. Thanks to Prime Minister for hosting us."

It's not his first scrape with controversy: Tuilagi sparked a brouhaha two years ago at the World Cup in New Zealand when he was fined almost $5,000 by the English Rugby Union and cautioned by police after jumping from a ferry the day after England was eliminated by France in the quarterfinals.
