The difficulties of live television are well known. And an Argentinian news reporter found this out the hard way when he was discussing the proposed plan for the new European Super League and a man decided to take the opportunity to moon the camera. Watch below:
Christian Martin, a former Argentinian rugby player, was stood on the pavement by a main road when the mystery man walked behind him and pulled his pants down.
But not pleased with his first attempt, he then gave it another go, flashing a second time.
One of the journalists back in the studio told joked: "Someone behind you has just said hello."
Turning around and spotting the man, Christian - who now lives in the UK - called him over, saying: "Come, mate, be my guest. You want to say something?"
When he declined, Christian then branded the stranger a 'little squirrel', shouting back at him from the other side of the street.
He said: "If you're going to wear jogging bottoms, do some sport."
Returning to Spanish, Christian explained: "There's a pub right behind me that has just opened up again and for the British, getting their pub back again is like Argentinians being able to eat meat again after having to go several months without."
Signing off from the piece, Christian said: "The ESL is a nuclear bomb, a mutiny."
Following the incident, ESPN joked in a tweet: "Don't you mess with the @ASKOMARTIN. If you see Christian live on air in the street, think twice before bothering him."
The ESL is a controversial new competition that was announced late on Sunday night (18 April).
It involves 12 of the biggest clubs in world football: Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Real Madrid, Athletico Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Juventus.
These 12 cannot be relegated from the league, meaning that they will qualify for it every year.
Since it was announced that the clubs were trying to organise a new mid-week tournament away from the traditional Champions League set-up, fans, ex-players and pundits have shared their disgust with it.
Many of the critics have claimed that it's simply about money, and the bigger clubs exerting their power over the sport.
While commentating on Manchester United vs Burnley for Sky Sports, ex-United defender Gary Neville said: "In the wake of Covid, it's an absolute scandal.
"Manchester United and the rest of the big six clubs who have signed up for it should be ashamed of themselves."
He added: "The European Super League, are Arsenal in that? They've just drawn with Fulham! And Manchester United are drawing with Burnley. I must admit, I can't concentrate on the game, me.
"They should be docked, all the six teams that have signed up to it. Deduct points off them all - to do it during a season, it's a joke."
