As kick-off to the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid drew closer, there was one question on everyone's lips: what on earth was Rio Ferdinand wearing?
The former Manchester United defender was on punditry duty alongside Steve McManaman and Gary Lineker, and it seemed he was taking the occasion very seriously indeed in his dinner jacket and bow tie.
What was he playing at? What had he come as?
Most people, though, were making this joke.
Rio Ferdinand: shaken, stirred, and dressed like a snooker referee.
