Earlier this month, the internet was up in arms over football commentators Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher walking away from their Sky Sports co-host Kelly Cates during a truly odd pre-match segment.

Last night, however, Cates got her brilliant revenge, which had social media cheering for the sports presenter.
When Neville asked her when the Manchester derby was taking place, Cate saw her moment for payback, swiftly turning her back on her co-host and walking towards a back-tracking camera.
Unable to hide her smile, Cates said: “Wednesday, 7 o’clock on Sky Sports Premier League. Don’t you dare turn your back.”
