LATEST: Colourful former basketball star Dennis Rodman has been forced to pull out of next month's (JUL05) Wife Carrying World Championships in Finland after his spouse suffered motorcycle injuries.

Rodman, who counts Madonna and Carmen Electra among his former lovers, had hoped to take part in the quirky championship to celebrate his second wedding anniversary, but his wife MICHELLE MOYER injured her wrist and collar bone in a recent bike fall.

The reformed wildman is still hoping to attend the Wife Carrying World Championships next month (01JUL05), but concedes he won't be competing.

Instead, Rodman is now planning to join the daredevils who risk life and limb at the annual Running Of The Bulls in Pamplona, Spain.
