Gold Coast: In yet another news-anchoring blooper that is sure to leave you cracked up, BBC presenter Mike Bushell fell into a pool while he was busy chatting up with the Commonwealth Games’ swimmers. Right in the middle of the live interview, Bushell missed a step and fell, splashing into the pool as well as Internet history.
England CWG 2018 swimmers Sarah Vasey, Adam Peaty, Siobhan-Marie O’Connor, Ben Proud and James Guy, whom he was about to interview, were sitting on the edge of a small pool when the rather hilarious incident took place. Taking the joke on themselves, the official Twitter handle of the channel posted the video with a caption.

From trolling the presenter to giving him a medal for the splash he made, there were many reactions to the shared clip. However, most people on Twitter were also impressed with the way Bushell continued the interview after the fall.
