Gary Lineker said the BBC’s coverage of the FA Cup match between Wolverhampton and Liverpool was sabotaged after loud pornographic noises were heard during Tuesday’s preparations for the match.

BBC presenter Lineker was discussing a replay of the third round in the Molineux studios, along with experts Paul Ince and Danny Murphy, when audible crying was heard in the background.

Former Tottenham star Lineker was visibly taken aback and struggled not to laugh as he said, “Stop making those sounds, Danny.”

When the sexually charged sounds continued after an interview with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, Lineker switched to colleague and fellow former England striker Alan Shearer in the commentary portal.

“I think someone is sending something to someone’s phone. I don’t know if you heard it at home,” Lineker said.

Once the match started, Lineker revealed the reason by tweeting an image of a mobile phone and three laughing emoji along with the words: “Well, we found this taped to the back of the TV. As for the sabotage, it was pretty funny.”

During an analysis of the break, Lineker took the opportunity to shed light on the strange incident.

Speaking to Ince and Murphy, he said of Liverpool’s first goal: “Harvey Elliott’s goal was flashy … and it wasn’t the only goal we scored tonight.”

The stunt did not go unnoticed by viewers as the incident was widely shared on social media.

A spokesman for the BBC tweeted: “We apologize to all viewers who were offended during live football coverage tonight. We are investigating how this happened.”
