Twitter reacts as George Hamilton commentates on tonight's match from inside a bucket
The first commentator in space, anybody?
Technical problems in Camp Nou meant that RTÉ's commentary team of Ronnie Whelan and George Hamilton sounded like they were transported back in time.
Twitter, understandably, couldn't keep quiet.
Is George Hamilton doing this commentary over his phone from his sitting room? @RTEsoccer

Aguero off and Dzeko on for #MCFC . Sound issues in Barcelona mean George Hamilton sounds like he's in Mexico and it's 1986.

I'm expecting George Hamilton to mention Joe Corrigan instead of Joe Hart...#1970's

Loving the old school commentary from George Hamilton down the crackly line. Throwback to the 1980s and games in Budapest and Belgrade

Great to hear George Hamilton’s 1986 World Cup sounding commentary. Expect more of this same this summer in Brazil. #RTE2 #ChampionsLeague
