A Chinese soccer analyst has been fired after he fell asleep and snored on live television during this week’s Real Madrid-Paris Saint-Germain match.

According to the UK Mirror, Dong Lu, 46, a 20-year soccer pundit, “had to stay up until 3:45am” for kick-off “and fatigue got the better of him in the final 20 minutes.”

Lu, the co-commentator for the match for LeTV, “can be heard snoring at around the 79-minute mark, in an incident that had football fans across China chuckling.”
