Here are the best jokes about Gary Lineker presenting Match of the Day in his pants, fulfilling his promise from last season.
The former England striker pledged to host the flagship BBC show in just his undies if his beloved Leicester won the Premier League.
That’s how unlikely it seemed at the time, but the Foxes defied odds of 5000/1 to win the title by ten clear points.
Being a good sport, Lineker kept to his word and presented Match of the Day in his pants.
However, some felt that the length of his ‘underwear’ represented something of a cop out:

Not surprised people feel cheated that Lineker isn't wearing budgie smugglers.
You could smuggle an entire pet shop in those shorts. #MOTD

Gary Lineker hosting Match Of The Day in his pants was the weirdest event since Paul Ince's feud with that dog he claimed had "dissed" him.
