Key sees stars after head knock in hotel room

Prime Minister John Key almost knocked himself out yesterday in his hotel room in Phnom Pehn, he said.

He had been bending over to get his cellphone charger and knocked his head on a desk in the room.

He told reporters who noticed a small cut and lump on his forehead that he "saw stars and I don't mean Sylvester Stallone".

The incident happened after he had had a round of golf with Trade Minister Tim Groser.

He was staying at the Cambodiana for the East Asia Summit.
