Inside BBC Sport’s Christmas party as Shearer sings into a BREADSTICK while Richards and Murphy clap along

ALAN SHEARER had his fellow BBC pundits in hysterics as he sang into a breadstick during their Qatar-based Christmas party.

While many of the Beeb’s pundits have come home from the Middle East with the tournament having entered its final days, their top team remain out there.

Micah Richards also gave it some gusto

Looking to have some fun, a group including Shearer, Gary Lineker and Micah Richards got together for a Christmas party of their own.

During the simple affair, Shearer didn’t hold back when it came to the karaoke.

In a video posted by Lineker, the Newcastle legend could be seen using a breadstick as a microphone – giving it some welly as he sang You Can’t Hurry Love by The Supremes.

The 52-year-old attacked each note like he used to throw himself at crosses, not shying away from growling into his impromptu mic.

And his enthusiasm was infectious, with Richards also getting in on the performance and making it a duet.

Even Danny Murphy could be seen bobbing along in the background, with those off camera laughing at the brilliant exchange.

Lineker, 62, wrote on Twitter: “The @BBCSport Christmas party is going well.”

Replaying to the BBC host’s tweet, Shearer joked: “Ffs Micah the breadsticks are for singing not f….. eating man!!”


Danny Murphy was loving the performance

The performance went down a treat with fans online, with one tweeting: “This is so good, love it!”

While another wrote: “Alan with the voice and Micah with the moves. The use of that breadstick is sensational.”

A third Twitter user joked: “All the right notes just not necessarily in the right order.”

And a further fan even quipped: “I tell you what. That Phil Collins does a really good imitation of @alanshearer.”

The boys will be back on screen this Saturday, with the BBC set to broadcast the Third Place Play-Off.

They will then be back the following day for the big one, as they go up against ITV with both showing the World Cup final.

It won’t be the first time they’ve gone up against their rival broadcaster this tournament.

They recently met each other on the football pitch, with Roy Keane dramatically ripping his shirt off after scoring ITV’s winner.
