à cause de son melon

English
#1
Hi guys,

I'm translating some articles on Thierry Henry for school and keep coming across the word 'melon'.

One article states one of his nicknames is le melon d'Espagne.

One comment reads: "ça ne sera jamais mon héros à cause de son melon et de sa fausse modestie."

Is it a slang word for a handball?

Thanks in advance :)
