Gary Lineker presented match of the day in his underpants as he had promised last season if his beloved Leicester City wins the Premiership title.
When the Match of the day presenter made the declaration on twitter last season,he never never in a million years thought it was possible to win the title,even God didn't think it was possible.But then,football has a way of shocking us all
Former England captain Lineker, 55, pledged to "do the first MOTD of next season in just my undies" if former club Leicester won the Premier League.
The Foxes went on to win their first top-flight title by 10 points.
"It is a one-off and a sporting miracle that has landed me in my underwear," said Lineker, who scored 95 goals in 194 appearances for Leicester.
But Lineker cheated though,it was just like a referee promising a penalty and awarding a free kick at the last minute.Those things you are wearing Gary ain't no underpants.Those are at the very best football shorts,lol.
"When I tweeted that silly bet back in December, I categorically knew there was zero chance of Leicester winning the league. Zero chance. It happened but it was magical, it was great."
Lineker managed to keep a straight face, while MOTD pundits Alan Shearer and Ian Wright giggled in the background, as he opened the programme.
Lineker stayed in his underwear as Shearer and Wright analysed Leicester's opening-day defeat by Hull. But as the programme moved on to the second match, he told viewers: "Enough of this nonsense - I'm going to get dressed!"
He returned to discuss Manchester City's game against Sunderland wearing a shirt and trousers.
