Gary Lineker has apologised after eagle-eyed viewers spotted that he was without pants and sporting an enormous erection during a recent broadcast. The Match of the Day host was visibly mortified when made aware of his mistake by Ian Wright.
“I can only apologise,” Lineker told Soccer on Sunday. “To be naked on-air from the waist down is bad enough. But to also be on a raging horn is inexcusable. I will learn from this experience and come back stronger and wearing more clothes and not on an erection.”
“I’ve let the BBC down, with my erection,” said the former striker. “At a time when debate should rightly be focused on how football might return safely, people are instead discussing the shape and texture of my enormous penis.”
“I am deeply sorry,” he added.
