Komentator Tiongkok Ketiduran Saat Madrid vs PSG

Pic shows: Dong Lu. A football commentator has lost his job after a hilarious incident which saw him fall asleep and snore on live television while giving his thoughts on a UEFA Champions League group stage match this week. Dong Lu, the veteran Chinese pundit, was acting as co-commentator for LeTVís coverage of the Real Madrid versus Paris Saint-Germain match early Wednesday morning Beijing time, when he accidentally dozed off. In his defence, the 46-year-old had to stay up till 3:45am to watch the kick-off - in Madridís Santiago Bernabeu Stadium - and fatigue got the better of him in the last 20 minutes. In footage of the match from LeTV, Dong can be heard snoring at around the 79-minute mark, in an incident that had football fans across China chuckling. However, his employers at LeTV did not take the incident as lightly, as the man with 20 years of experience analysing football matches was fired from his post soon after. Dong later apologised for the incident and vowed to continue his profession through his personal online blog. The match in question ended 1ñ0, with Real Madrid getting the crucial win to secure qualification to the round of 16 with two games to spare. "Los Blancos" took a first-half lead through substitute Nacho Fernandez, who had been on the pitch for a matter of minutes, having come on for the injured Marcelo. Despite twice hitting the woodwork in the match, the Parisians were unable to get themselves on the scoresheet. They will have to wait until matchday five when they visit Swedish team Malmo for a chance to book a place in the knock-out phase of the worldís most illustrious club football competition. (ends)
