Dong Lu, the veteran Chinese pundit, was acting as co-commentator for LeTV’s coverage of the Real Madrid versus Paris Saint-Germain match early Wednesday morning Beijing time, when he dozed off.

The 46-year-old had to stay up until 3:45am for kick-off at the Santiago Bernabeu, and fatigue got the better of him in the final 20 minutes. In footage of the match from LeTV, Dong can be heard snoring at around the 79-minute mark, in an incident that had football fans across China chuckling.


However, his employers at LeTV did not take the incident lightly, as the man with 20 years of experience analysing football matches was fired from his post soon after. Dong later apologised for the incident and vowed to continue his profession through his personal online blog.

The match in question ended 1–0, with Real Madrid getting the crucial win to secure qualification to the round of 16 with two games to spare.

Los Blancos took a first-half lead through substitute Nacho, who had been on the pitch for a matter of minutes, having come on for the injured Marcelo. Despite twice hitting the woodwork in the match, the Parisians were unable to get themselves on the scoresheet.
They will have to wait until matchday five when they visit Swedish team Malmo for a chance to book a place in the knock-out phase of the world’s most illustrious club football competition.
