Laura Woods left ‘embarrassed’ live on TV as Rio Ferdinand cheekily shows her up on her TNT Sports debut


LAURA WOODS was hilariously embarrassed by Rio Ferdinand during her TNT Sports debut as the Manchester United legend nutmegged her on the Etihad pitch.

Woods, 36, was hosting her first Champions League game for the broadcaster on Tuesday evening as Manchester City came from behind to clinch a 3-1 win over Red Star Belgrade.

The ex-talkSPORT host was joined by pundits Ferdinand and Joleon Lescott for the match.

And it was the former Man Utd defender who brilliantly popped the ball through Woods’ legs as they moved from the pitch to the touchline.

When the presenter was attempting to move onto another segment, Ferdinand interrupted by saying: “How dare you try and get away with it. Don’t even try to go to any link.

“There’s been a nutmeg live on air on her debut. Laura Woods has been megged.”

The TNT Sports broadcast then showed the moment from a couple of different angles.

Ferdinand added: “Just popped it through quickly, beautiful.”

Woods responded by pretending to hit the former England international.

And she said: “I think that was probably better, the backslap.”


TNT Sports tweeted the video out on social media as Ferdinand replied with four laughing emojis.

Reacting to the clip, one person said: “No way lool what a debut @laura_woodsy .”

Another added: “Ferdinand gives no chill .”

While a third replied: “Rio bad guy .”
