Gary Lineker poos himself at World Cup 1990

BBC1's Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker has a secret. He once - how to put it politely? - took a dump in the middle of the pitch during a game in the World Cup finals in Italy in 1990. Surprised you didn't notice it at the time? As the man himself says: "Unless you know, you wouldn't know. But when you know, you do know." We couldn't have put it better ourselves. "I was not very well, I was poorly at half-time," explains the great man, who wore the number 10 shirt but now might be better known for a number two. Anyway, back to Gary. "I tried to tackle someone, stretched and relaxed myself and erm ... " Do go on. "I was very fortunate that it rained that night so I could do something about it, but it was messy. It was the opening game of the 1990 World Cup against the Republic of Ireland. You can see myself rubbing the ground like a dog trying to clean it. It was the most horrendous experience of my life." It did have one upside though – the Irish players were predictably unwilling to go near him. "I have never found so much space after that in my life." Let's hope he remembered to wash his hands before tucking into his post-match crisps.

CANNAVARO Brothers Sentenced To Prison

Italian World Cup winning captain Fabio Cannavaro has been handed a 10 month jail term by an Italian court after breaking a police seal at his villa near Naples. The 41-year-old, who is currently the head coach at Chinese Super League club Guangzhou Evergrande, got into trouble with the authorities after he breached orders to keep out of the property which had been confiscated and sealed off as part of an ongoing investigation into the abuse of housing regulations. The Mirror reports that the custodial sentence was handed down on Wednesday by a judge in Cannavaro’s home city after he, his wife and brother entered the house to go swimming. His wife and brother, Paolo Cannavaro who plays for Serie A side Sassuolo, were also given jail terms. All three immediately launched appeals against the sentences and will be spared prison until these ongoing legal proceedings are concluded.
