Football stars of Charlton and West Ham, including Hammers boss Sam Allardyce got a soaking this week.

Allardyce and West Ham players Carlton Cole and Cheikhou Kouyate took on the 'ice bucket challenge' this week after a nomination from Ravel Morrison.

The internet craze sees participants endure a bucket of ice cold water over their head, which originated in the US to raise money and awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, more commonly known as Motor Neurone Disease in the UK.

Charlton captain Johnnie Jackson took on the challenge after a nomination from former Valley favourite Matt Holland.

Jackson was soaked at the ground following the side's Tuesday night win over Derby.
