Gary Lineker lives up to his tweet, presents Match of the Day in his underwear

In December of last year, former Leicester striker and current Match of the Day present Gary Lineker made what seemed like a harmless joke about the likelihood of his old club holding onto first place in the Premier League over the final five months of the season.

But to Lineker delight/horror Leicester only went and won the title, prompting three months of everyone asking if he would go back on his tweet.

Proving to be a man of his word, Lineker began the first Match of the Day of the new season in Leicester branded boxers (the BBC probably refused to approve anything smaller and/or tighter). And to make the experience even worse, he had to talk about the club losing to Hull City.

Lineker did eventually put clothes on, but this should be a lesson that the ridiculous will happen in the Premier League and the internet doesn’t forget.
