He’s the NRL coaching king renowned for his ice-cold answers at press conferences. But Melbourne Storm mastermind Craig Bellamy turned princess – Disney’s Princess Elsa to be precise – and got ‘Frozen’ for Monday’s Big Freeze 7.
Bellamy donned the hilarious outfit – gloves, tiara and all – for the traditional fundraiser supporting the fight against motor neurone disease (MND).
The event, now in its seventh season, has raised nearly $50 million for AFL legend’s Neale Daniher’s FightMND charity.
Bellamy couldn’t be in attendance to join celebrities and AFL greats for the traditional slide into an icy pool at the MCG.
But he made his contribution from Storm’s Twin Waters base on the Sunshine Coast.
In front of a laughing Melbourne playing group, Bellamy copped an icy shower from stars Cameron Munster and Jesse Bromwich.
“A big shoutout to my grandkids, especially Billie. She really loves Elsa, so Billie this is a little bit for you,” he said.
It was a superb throwback to the original Ice Bucket Challenge that went viral around the world and raised awareness for the degenerative disease.
And Bellamy even cracked a rare – warm – smile.
