In a rush to reach Russia and head-up the BBC’s World Cup coverage, the nation’s favourite football presenter, Mr Gary Lineker, has caused a bit of an outcry in the newspapers.
Apparently, on a flight over to Moscow, he travelled business class, while fellow England football legend, Terry Butcher (the guy who played on with the bloody head injury…you remember the pictures, right?), had to do with travelling in economy.
Worst of it is…they were on the same flight!
If you’ve ever been boarding a plane with friends and only one of you struck it lucky with an upgrade, you can imagine how poor old Terry Butcher felt watching Lineker ‘turn left’ when he got on the plane.
Of course, no one is pretending it was just luck that got Gary the upgrade. As far as the BBC is concerned, he’s their star man and they would have booked the high level of travel intentionally.
We dread to think what poor old Terry’s hotel room will look like compared to Gary’s. In fact, we wonder if Terry might even be forced to sleep in the bath of Gary’s en-suite.
