Jermaine Jenas vs a sprinkler is the only sporting action you need to watch this summer

There are many things you probably don’t want to happen while reporting from the side of a football pitch – and being hit in the face with water has to be up there.

But poor Jermaine Jenas couldn’t escape the path of a rogue sprinkler while covering England’s game against Portugal at the Women’s Euro 2017 tournament.

People couldn’t help but find the situation a little bit funny – and Jenas won’t be forgetting his debut as a pundit for Channel 4 any time soon, that’s for sure.

His co-worker Samantha Quek had a good old laugh about it on Twitter too.

Jenas seems to be taking it all in good spirits though.

Better wear a shower cap next time…
