Veteran Chinese commentator, Dong Lu, has been sacked from Chinese broadcaster LeTV after he dosed off while covering the Champions League match between Real Madrid and PSG. To be fair to Mr. Dong, with the time difference between China and Europe, it was 3:45 in the morning. Unfortunately for him, his snores were picked up fairly clearly over the live broadcast and he was quickly removed from the broadcast. Maybe next time Lu will be sure to get enough sleep before the game, instead of during.
