The BBC has apologized after the audio of a pornographic recording was played during its FA Cup football match on Tuesday.

As groans could be heard on set, one of the hosts tried to explain the situation. “I think somebody sends something to somebody’s phone. I don’t know if you heard it at home,” said Gary Lineker.

The audio was revealed to be from a mobile device, which was recorded on the back of a broadcast kit, which appeared to be a prank.

Lineker tweeted: “We found this taped to the back of the kit. As far as sabotage goes, it’s been a lot of fun.”
