Chinese Commentator Fired For Snoring In Middle Of Champions League Game

The deep and hearty snores you hear are from Chinese commentator Dong Lu during this week’s Real Madrid-PSG Champions League match, and he’s not taking a sly jab at the quality of play. Apparently, Dong really did fall asleep during the game, and his network fired him for it.

According to the Mirror, Dong conked out at around the match’s 80-minute mark, which would put the local time at just past 5 a.m. in Beijing. Soccer at the crack of dawn can drain you, but LeTV wasn’t as understanding, and gave him the boot. Here’s hoping his next gig keeps more regular hours.
