Gary Lineker, famous for being one of England’s greatest football players, is taking a royal pounding on twitter and it would take someone completely devoid of any humour not to find it funny.
How has this come about? Well a few years back Gary confessed that during the 1990 World Cup match against Ireland he had a bit of an accident and was caught short while playing, (see video above). This sort of thing happens all the time to sportsmen and Lineker being the consummate professional sorted himself out, by wiping his arse on the pitch, and continued to play.
Somehow 24 years later the incident has come back to haunt Gary with people on Twitter reminding the ex-footballer he touched cloth in front of millions of viewers by tweeting: ‘You shat on the pitch,’ at every conceivable chance they get. Infuriated with their troll-like behaviour Lineker embarked on a mass blocking this week which, as any person with even passing knowledge of the Internet will tell you, never, ever works.
It’s just never going to stop!
