These are the best of the David Moyes slap jokes after the Sunderland manager was filmed appearing to threaten a female Match of the Day reporter, albeit jokingly.

A media storm has erupted around the coach of the relegation candidates, with some calling for him to be sacked over what have been deemed by many as highly inappropriate comments to the BBC’s Vicki Sparks during his post-match interview.

The incident is said to have been recorded on the phone of a colleague of Sparks following a 0-0 draw with Burnley at the Stadium of Light last month and subsequently released to the media.

With multiple arguments on both sides amidst his recent apology, best to stick with the David Moyes slap jokes:

''There's absolutely no way Sunderland's season could get any worse.''
