Sky Sports reporter Geoff Shreeves has apologised after telling Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette to watch his language during an post-match interview.
The awkward moment came following the Gunners’ 2-0 win over Everton at the Emirates on Sunday.
When asked whether Petr Cech was to thank for the win, Lacazette gave praise to the Spanish keeper.
Lacazette said: “A big thanks to Petr Cech because he took a lot of balls today and we won our first clean sheet.”
To which Shreeves followed up with: “Steady with the language, I know English isn’t your first. Be careful with the language.”

Shreeves has now admitted that he made a mistake on Twitter: “Right let’s be clear. I didn’t hear clearly/understand what he said. @LacazetteAlex quite rightly looked blankly at me thinking “What is this fool on about?” In short, I b@llsed it up.”
