Presenters baffled after seeing 'kid drinking beer' at football game
Football presenters working for broadcaster BT Sport have been left baffled after they witnessed a "kid drinking beer" at a football game.
The incident took place at a football game in Germany and was made public on Twitter. Taking to the website, BT Sport Score posted a clip of the child appearing to drink 'beer' that was captioned: "Did we really just spot a kid drinking a beer in Germany?"This is the clip of the child drinking 'beer':
In the clip, one of the presenters says: "Well, we basically had a shot in one of the German games of a child of no more than about six with a pint of beer."
Another remarks: "The worrying thing is, it's not a pint - it's nearly finished."
A person in the studio then offers an alternate explanation for what they have witnessed, suggesting that it's a "nonalcoholic" beer.At a different football game, this child was spotted 'smoking':
Needless to say, the video of the child seemingly drinking beer caused a storm on Twitter.
One user wrote: "Thanks I'm now going to the shop to get beer as this kid is having a better Saturday than me."
Another joked: "Loved that whoever he was with appears to have told him to finish it off when he tried to hand it back."
Meanwhile, a third said that they'd seen children doing much worse at a sporting event, writing: "That's nothing, I saw kids doing jäger bombs last week before Forest v QPR."
Further weight was also given to the theory that not all was as it seemed. A fourth Twitter user wrote: "This is kind of apple juice mixed with soda called Apfelschorle. Very common in Germany."
Meanwhile, in other beer-related news, a recent study found that drinking beer every day can double your chances of living to 90.
