Kevin Sinfield caught urinating live on BBC Breakfast as presenters left in hysterics

Leeds Rhinos legend Kevin Sinfield brought BBC Breakfast to a halt and left presenters Charlie Stayt and Rachel Burden in hysterics earlier this morning.

Former Leeds Rhinos captain and rugby legend Kevin Sinfield has been taking part in an ultra marathon to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease awareness. As fans of the club know, Kevin's close friend and teammate Rob Burrow was diagnosed with MND in December 2019 - Kevin has raised lots of cash inspired by Rob.

Lots of viewers took to Twitter to make light of the situation. We saw @djrustynail post: “Kevin Sinfield running off to do a wee, just as #BBCBreakfast cut to him. That has to feature on the next series of It'll Be Alright on the Night. #weecam.” While @mr_chown added: “Brilliant @BBCBreakfast following Kevin Sinfield doing his 7 in 7 and he stops for a wee.

And, @drp297 wrote: “Loving @BBCBreakfast cutting to #kevinsinfield doing his ultramarathon, just as Kev stops for a wee! So funny.”

Kevin began his fundraiser on Sunday, November 13 and with the aim of reaching Old Trafford for the half-time whistle at the Rugby League World Cup men's final on Saturday, November 19. So far, Kevin’s efforts this week have seen £1.3m raised for good causes Motor Neurone Disease Association, Leeds Hospitals Charity, The Darby Rimmer MND Foundation, My Name'5 Doddie Foundation and MND Scotland.
