England legend Gary Lineker has admitted that he pooed himself during a match at the 1990 World Cup.
It happened during the opening game of the tournament in Italy against the Republic of Ireland and was first made public in Terry Butcher's autobiography.
But Lineker has now come clean and admitted the incident did take place during the second half of the match against the Irish, which finished 1-1.
"I was not very well, I was poorly at half-time, there was a ball down the left-hand side, I tried to tackle someone, stretched, and then relaxed myself," he admitted in a interview with the BBC to mark his 50th birthday.
"I was very fortunate it rained that night as it allowed me to do something about it, but it was messy - it just happened.
"I tell you I have never had so much space in a match as I did after that," he joked in the interview, which has been posted on YouTube.
Lineker played 80 times for England and scored 48 goals, including one against Ireland in the match in question, before his unfortunate accident took place.
