The British broadcaster was apparently pranked. Ex-professional and presenter Gary Lineker was about to ask a question to colleague Alan Shearer Tuesday night, according to videos circulating around the internet, when a woman’s groan was heard.
Lineker grinned and said, “Someone is texting something on someone’s phone, I think.” The expert later tweeted a photo of an older model phone with adhesive strips and wrote: “Well we found this taped behind the scenes. As for the sabotage, it was quite amusing.”
The BBC issued a statement apologizing for the incident. A spokesman announced an investigation. The report published on the BBC website also said that a prank player known on YouTube had claimed the action for himself. The BBC had broadcast the replay between Liverpool FC and Wolves, which the Reds, coached by Jürgen Klopp, won 1-0.
