BBC One sports broadcaster Gary Lineker lost a bet over the weekend and had to present the news in his undies on British TV.
The stunt came after Lineker, a retired English football player, promised to strip if his team Leicester FC won the 2016 Premier League. After Leicester held onto top spot by beating Chelsea 2-1 last December, Lineker posted on Twitter:
YES! If Leicester win the @premierleague I’ll do the first MOTD of next season in just my undies.
