WATCH: Rio Ferdinand’s awkward Super Bowl cameo features disastrous fistbump

Left hanging

Last year we had Martin O’Neill and this time the BBC Super Bowl random guest generator threw up Rio Ferdinand.

The former West Ham, Leeds United and Manchester United defender kept it casual when he turned up in the studio during the first quarter in Houston.

The besuited Mark Chapman, Jason Bell and the lads have a good chuckle at Rio’s attire, but it is when the retired footballer is excessively complimented by Osi Umenyiora that things go astray.

The former Falcon and two-time Super Bowl winner with the New York Giants puts the early stalemate down to the presence of the greatest defender of all time (Rio). Cue many handshakes and one fist bump too far from Rio.

This being the SuperBowl, the totes awky momo did not go unnoticed.
