A second wrote: “Football help just a tip ITV GIVE SOME THE MICROPHONE WHEN THEY ARE TALKING … ..IDIOTS.”

A third added, “Alex Scott asks Judy Murray a question and then forgets to put the microphone in front of her apparently top-notch host.”

A fifth wrote: “The coverage of #SoccerAid is already looking messy and I love it!”
