This Horse Racing Presenter's Blooper Is The Funniest Thing You'll Watch Today
You know those moments you have where you want the ground to swallow you whole? Immediately. Like right now!? Well this is a prime example from racing presenter Derek Thompson.
Thompson, or 'Tommo' as he goes by, is one of the most recognisable voices and faces in horse racing, and yesterday, he made a fantastic mistake.
Presenting At The Races, Tommo crossed live to his colleague Robert Cooper who was hoping to do a link from a racecourse somewhere in the UK. But things didn't go to plan:

I have watched this at least 100 times so far this morning and plan on returning to it loads over the Christmas. "It's a man actually Derek" - unreal!!
Tommo will wait for starter's orders next time.
Big shout out to our own racing (and all things sporty) expert Paul Collins for sending this our way. A lovely lil pressie.
Derek's always good for a laugh. Here he is back in 2012 with a bizarre promo video for his beloved The Crown Hotel in Bawtry.
"Are ya well?":
We'd love a night out with Tommo.
