Football commentator sacked for sleeping on duty….

Listen: Chinese commentator gets sacked for snoring on air during Madrid v PSG

Chinese commentator Dong Lu gets sacked for snoring on air during Real Madrid v PSG that ended 1 – 0 in favor of Madrid. Dong, 46, is a veteran Chinese pundit who had been tasked with commentating on the Madrid v PSG clash as part of LeTV’s Champions League coverage. Unfortunately, the time difference between Madrid and Beijing meant that Lu had to stay up until 3.45am to watch the match, and tiredness just got the better of him. Dong can be heard snoring live on air after dozing off around the 79-minute mark, with LeTV promptly removing him from his post.
