Rio Ferdinand read the sports news on BBC Radio this morning

Full-time celebrity and part-time footballer Rio Ferdinand called into the BBC this morning as a guest on Radio 1’s breakfast show.

And the former Manchester United and occasional QPR defender was thrown in at the deep-end by presenters, when asked to read one of their sports bulletins.

Similar to most of his appearances on the football pitch this season, things didn’t start well for him, tripping over himself badly before delivering a fairly unenthusiastic minute of action.

We’re just sickened he didn’t stick around for the death notices.
