Will Ferrell, Ramsay

Talk about giving until it hurts!

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay and Will Ferrell both paid a heavy price for appearing in a U.K. celebrity soccer match for UNICEF, when both were forced from the game by injury.

They'll reportedly be OK, but which of them was taken off on a stretcher?

Ramsay was the unlucky star who had to be given oxygen on the field and was carted off to the hospital after a collision with former All England forward Teddy Sheringham, who was clearly taking the game too seriously.

We're sure the famously profane Hell's Kitchen star had an unprintable comment, but we'll just leave that to your imagination.

"Gordon was taken to the hospital after injuring his back during the game," his more genteel rep tells E! News. "He was released after receiving treatment and although he's in pain, there shouldn't be any long-term damage. He would like to thank the medical team at the ground and the hospital for the excellent care he received."

Faring only slightly better, funnyman Ferrell limped off near the end of the game, reportedly in a lot of pain.

Uninjured stars involved in the charity match, which raised more the $6 million, included Gerard Butler, Mike Myers, Woody Harrelson and Edward Norton.
