VIDEO: BBC presenter gets hit with a football live on air, responds like a boss
The perils of live television...
Live TV always has the slight risk that something may go wrong and you'll end up red-faced, although most of the time, you should be safe enough.
BBC presenter Chris Mitchell was reporting over the weekend when he received a rather unceremonious belt of a football on the back of his head.
We'd have certainly forgiven him for releasing some expletive words from his mouth considering it caught him completely unawares.
However, Mitchell showed the composure that probably earned him his job in the first place and even made a laugh out of the whole incident.
