Hi, welcome to Deadspin. We like poop here. Yet shockingly, we've never posted an actual video of someone soiling themselves. Until now.

Gary Lineker had a wonderful 1990 Cup, scoring four goals and leading England to a fourth place finish. He also shat himself on the pitch during his opening game against Ireland. Lineker made the confession in a BBC radio interview, and an enterprising listener was able to track down the relevant footage.

So don't get bent out of shape the next time you see a player go down without being touched. He might just be cleaning up after himself.
