Good touch for a camera man.

BT Sport: “Break” - 60s

This amusing outing for BT Sport suggests the old adage that 'form is temporary, but class is permanent' may need revising. When the channel cut to an ad break, hosts Gary Lineker and Rio Ferdinand instigate a game of keepy-uppy amongst the surprisingly talented crew. Alas, not everyone is blessed with a light touch…

While the supporting cast's ball skills deserve praise, it the leads' back-and-forth that makes the ad. As Lineker blames his heavy first touch on a, erm, "heavy pass" from the make-up artist, Ferdinand offers zero sympathy: "You was a good player before… once." Brutal.
