BBC presenter Mike Bushell fell into a water pool while filming an interview with British swimmers who are taking part in the Commonwealth Games in Australia, the media outlet reported.
During the poolside chat live on TV, the presenter was just getting ready to speak with athletes Sarah Vasey, Adam Peaty, Siobhan-Marie O'Connor, Ben Proud, and James Guy, who were all sitting by the edge of the pool wearing their team colors and adorned with medals. What a recovery from Mike Bushell! A second later, having failed to notice a step, Bushell slipped into the deeper water.
Mike was about to interview the English swimming team at the Commonwealth Games in Australia for BBC Breakfast, but he unfortunately lost his balance - landing him straight into the swimming pool.
Billy Mitchell's scores permanantly removed from Twin Galaxies, banned from future submissions
Mitchell hasn't held the Donkey Kong record since 2010, which is now held by Robbie Lakeman with a score of 1,247,700. The VHS footage of Mitchell's record was undoubtedly spliced so he could pass off his record as legitimate.
BBC Breakfast presenter Charlie Stayt said: 'If you're just joining us, Mike is carrying on talking but we can't hear him because a moment ago he fell in the water'. "The best bit was Mike Bushell then having to continue the interviews pretty much nose to nose", one quipped.
The sports broadcaster told viewers that he would have to "be careful" when stepping into the pool, explaining how he had a sound pack on.
He managed to complete his interview five minutes later, before adding: 'I thought it was a jacuzzi or a kids pool, I didn't realise there was a step'.
