Chelsea's win over Barcelona may have been the big news last night, but Twitter was furious with the Sky reporter for his comments to Cole and Ivanovic
Not only did he insist on brown-nosing Ashley Cole by calling him Ash twice in their interview, in doing so achieving the impossible and making the British public dislike him more than Cole; he also took it upon himself to tell Branislav Ivanovic (twice again) that thanks to his yellow card he wouldn't be playing in the final. Most humans with regular levels of empathy would surely have avoided that fact on live TV, and instead focused on the Serbian's achievements that evening, rather than the fact he would play no part in the biggest game of his career.
Anyway, Twitter was up in arms. Here's some of the best tweets about it.
