BBC 'sorry' for Boycott outburst
Monday 30 November 2009
The BBC has apologised to radio listeners after a foul-mouthed outburst from Geoffrey Boycott during its cricket coverage.
The outspoken 69-year-old commentator was overheard shrieking “f****** t****r” during the corporation's Test Match Special coverage of England's match against South Africa yesterday.
It was not known who the comment was directed at.
A Radio 5 Live spokesman said: “An off-air comment made by Geoffrey Boycott in a live broadcast was heard by some listeners which we apologised for as soon as we realised it had been audible.”
