Tweeting live during the Champions League encounter between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich last night, Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker’s big mouth may have got the former England striker into a spot of bother.

With Madrid leading 1-0 at the interval, Lineker boldly tweeted this claim:

The final score? Real Madrid 1-0 Bayern Munich. Oh dear. With 2.32 million followers, demands have inevitably come for Lineker to deliver on his promise.

Lineker has even received some tongue-in-cheek advice and remarks from fellow former sporting professionals.

Unsurprisingly, Lineker has attempted to squirm his way out of his promise.

But if the aggregate scoreline remains the same after ninety minutes in the Allianz Arena, could Lineker live to regret his claim?
