BBC show host Claire Balding inadvertently told Olympic gold medal swimmer Matt Richards that his “third leg is outstanding.”
After winning the gold medal on Wednesday, the 18-year-old swimmer was interviewed by Barding with his 4x200m freestyle teammate Tom Dean.
When she told Richards “your third leg is amazing”, Balding left Dean, and in particular, she tried to keep it together.
Before answering the question professionally, Richards let out a chuckle.
He replied: “Yes, I mean I haven’t actually had a chance to watch it. I tried to find it.
“To be honest, I ran into some trouble finding the game video.”
Balding’s unintentional gaffe led her to become a hot topic on Twitter, which one user called ” Olympic Games“.
