And the Australian football commentator who enthused about 'a magnificent punt kick from the back pocket' only that's not quite what he said. He glossed over it but it was his snickering co-commentators who drew everyone's attention to the gaffe. Well, not gaffe...

Even the most staid of cricket announcers appreciates the opportunity for a bit of wit. John Arlott once mused about New Zealand all-rounder Bob Cunis' name: 'Funny sort of name, neither one thing nor t'other'.

Apparently there was stunned silence in the commentary box before Arlott continued his observations of the match.
