A big puddle, a Sky Sports reporter and a footballer in a hurry. It’s a mix that results in live TV blooper gold.
Journalist Michael Bridge was reporting on transfer deadline day outside Crystal Palace’s grounds, commenting on which players were looking likely – and unlikely – to switch clubs ahead of the upcoming season.
That looked like it might be the end of it, but the man behind the wheel of the 4×4 was clearly feeling a bit sheepish after realising what he’d done. And that man was Crystal Palace’s Patrick van Aanholt.
Taking to Twitter, he said:
Think I just splashed one of your reporters @SkySportsNews 😳…I’ll warn the boys of the puddle as they enter training 🤣 sooooorrryyyy! #DeadlineDay
