Former Lincoln City coach Curtis Woodhouse teaches Twitter troll a lesson
Footballer turned boxer Curtis Woodhouse left a Twitter tormentor running for cover today by driving to his doorstep for a face to face showdown.
The former Lincoln City coach was incensed by a barrage of abuse from a user known as The Master who branded the light welterweight a "disgrace" for losing his English title last week.
"What is funny is you put so much effort in, sacrificed all of that time and failed to defend your Mickey Mouse title," he wrote.
"Retire immediately, you are a complete disgrace.

"Haha, you lost you silly mug, fight a 10-year-old next time if you want to actually win."
Enraged Woodhouse then came bouncing back off the ropes with a flurry of his own Twitter uppercuts by offering £1,000 to his 19,000 followers for the real name and address of the culprit.
Writing "enough is enough", the former Hull City midfielder eventually found the address and embarked on a drive saying he was going to have a chat with an "old friend".
Eventually The Master backed down and apologised to Woodhouse.
Woodhouse's actions won him more than 8,000 followers on Twitter and was also given support by football star Joey Barton.
Barton, currently playing for Marseille, Tweeted: "I'm not an advocate of violence but what @woodhousecurtis has just done is hilarious!"
