The sight that greeted horse-racing fans on ITV's The Opening Show this morning provided a whole new way to keep the 'going soft'.
While presenter Luke Harvey chatted to jockey Tom Scudamore about the Cheltenham Festival, a man appeared to be urinating against a horse transporter in the background of the studio's window.
Harvey had almost got to the end of a question he'd put to Scudamore - 'Does it matter to you as a rider when you know you're on a horse that is...? - when they became distracted by the unforeseen event.
Not surprisingly, giggles ensued.
Today, St Patrick’s Day, marks the final day of the festival - and the desperate man clearly couldn't wait any longer.
Wearing jeans and green jacket, he positioned himself by the vehicle and let Nature take its course - seemingly oblivious that the cameras were rolling.
