Disappointed viewers claim Gary Lineker 'bottled' underwear bet as he presents MOTD in 'shorts'

A bet's a bet, and Gary Linker was never going to go back on his word, was he?

As you almost certainly know already, the former Spurs and Leicester City striker famously declared that he would happily present an episode of Match of the Day in his underwear on the condition that Leicester City won the Premier League.

Leicester did win the league, and as a result, Lineker was expected to don his y-fronts for the first show of the new season.

At first glance, it appeared the 55-year-old had indeed gone through with it...

Although the majority, JOE included, were quick to congratulate Lineker on wearing what was quite clearly a pair of boxer shorts, some disappointed viewers suggested that he seemed to be wearing nothing more than a pair of white shorts, complete with Leicester City badge.

Viewers were even more disappointed when Lineker got himself dressed during highlights of the second featured match of the show, Manchester City versus Sunderland.

To be honest, we're prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt.

There are definitely more important things in this world to be angry about than not seeing Gary Lineker presenting our favourite football highlights show in his budgie smugglers.

Good on you Gary.
