Euro 2024 draw disrupted by sex noises after group of death pulled out


The draw for the group stage of Euro 2024 was disrupted on Saturday when sex noises started playing out loud and were captured by the live broadcast. Manchester City icon David Silva was undergoing his duties when he was alerted to the sounds, leaving UEFA embarrassed during a huge event watched by millions.

Silva quickly looked over to the UEFA delegates as they pushed on and powered through despite the disruption, with several members of the audience spotted grinning.

Silva attempted to keep a straight face as Switzerland were drawn in Scotland's group along with Germany and Hungary and continued for what has been dubbed the 'group of death' featuring Spain, Croatia, Italy and Albania.

"There is some noise here..." the draw's host said during a pause in the broadcast, but once it cleared up he added: "No noise anymore..."

Denmark legend Brian Laudrup smiled when drawing names out as the prank continued on several occasions.

England were drawn in Group C with Denmark, Slovenia and Serbia while fellow home nation Wales can face France, Austria and the Netherlands should they qualify through the play-off by beating Finland and then either Poland or Estonia.

Earlier this year, Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer were left red-faced on the BBC during their broadcast of an FA Cup match between Wolves and Liverpool, which was similarly interrupted by loud sex noises.

Lineker attempted to talk over the noises previously in discussion with Paul Ince and Danny Murphy. Then with Shearer on commentary, Lineker said: "I don't know who's making that noise!"

The culprit on that occasion was a YouTube prankster who had taped a phone inside the studio. Reacting on X (formerly known as Twitter) at the time, Lineker posted a picture of the device and captioned it with: "Well, we found this taped to the back of the set. As sabotage goes it was quite amusing."
