A Sky Sports News presenter made a hilarious slip of the tongue as she was going through some football news.
The stunning Kate Abdo had seamlessly rolled the name Alexandre Lacazette off her tongue – even with a French accent.
Her mind seems to be on bigger things.. ???? pic.twitter.com/8ZQl6Jmmsw

But that is where her success ended.
As she gets to talking about Arsenal’s other transfer targets – and in particular Valencia stars – she stumbles and blurts out an altogether different word.
She comes out something that sounds suspiciously like “c**k” and says it not once, but twice.
Kate can hardly hide her embarrassment, as she looks nervously to her colleague with a wry grin creeping across her face.
Fair play to her, though, she still continues the report.
In the same segment, an eagle-eyed fan spotted Kate developing a Liverpudlian accent out of nowhere when pronouncing “Fellaini”.
What’s happened here? Kate Abdo develops a scouse accent when pronouncing ‘Fellaini’. A ‘Craig Davies’ moment. pic.twitter.com/F7fhUB4swi

The Sky Sports presenter isn’t the first person to suffer an awkward Freudian slip while live on air.
BBC Radio 4 host James Naughtie made perhaps the worst ever slip-up when he mispronounced UK health secretary Jeremy Hunt’s name live on air.
And Sky News fluffed their lines when talking about the MP as well, saying: “The health secretary Jeremy c*** – er, Hunt.”
Being an Arsenal fan is not easy at the best of times. But this summer, life as a Gooner has been particularly difficult. Understandably, Arsene Wenger’s lack of appetite for new purchases has left Gooners all over the world enormously frustrated.
A lack of activity in the transfer market has represented an auspicious start to the summer and with Arsenal already looking ill-prepared for a daunting looking opening run of Premier League fixtures, pressure is already growing on Wenger before a ball has been kicked in anger.
