Fans of BBC Breakfast were becoming rather annoyed with the continuous FIFA World Cup coverage on the show, as presenter Sally Nugent shared a rumour about her colleague in Doha.
On Tuesday morning’s programme (November 22), presenters Sally and Jon Kay discussed England and Wales’ latest victory in the football tournament.
As the sports coverage dominated the news programme reporter John Watson spoke directly to the presenters from Qatar as he provided further insight on the games from the ground.

But the discussion quickly turned to John’s attire and the choice of clothing he wore while in the heat.
Sally said: “But John, I know you had a woolly jumper on yesterday, it was a lovely woolly jumper but I heard a rumour you actually got sunburnt.”
John replied: “I did, yes I did.”
Sally responded: “The classic mistake!”
John then said: “You’d think after a week or so I might of cracked this wouldn’t you.”
But as the presenters, giggled over his misfortune, fans at home were desperate for other news.
Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: “Ok #FIFAWorldCup maybe news for some but it’s not the only news, there are other things going on.”
Another chimed: “Is it a slow news day?”
A third said: “Here’s an idea. What about reporting some actual real world news? What about reporting more on the really brave Iranians who did not sing their national anthem and why? The more I hear of your football reporting, the less I like it. Less is more.”
Meanwhile a fourth viewer wasn’t happy with the fact they also discussed the football games with school children.
The viewer penned: “I find it distasteful #BBCBreakfast keeps visiting schools and using children to promote a series of football matches that are taking up far to much air time. Yet more “bread and circuses”
England’s first match against Iran ended triunmphantly for the team as they beat them 6-2.
Wales however had a difficult first half in their match and manged to draw with USA, with both teams scoring one goal.
