Will he, or won't he?
YES! If Leicester win the @premierleague I'll do the first MOTD of next season in just my undies.

That is the question that everybody was asking at the end of the Premier League season, then sort of forgot about for the summer, and are now asking again thanks to the official MOTD twitter account.
With the famous highlights show returning to our screens this weekend, they sent out a tweet to suggest that Gary Lineker will actually be presenting the show in just his pants.

Of course, as is always the case with Gary Lineker on twitter, the first replies were about his pooing himself on the pitch against Ireland at Italia 90... It's one of the weirder internet memes.

But then the man himself joined the discussion, and it's safe to say he's looking forward to it...

So it does seem that Lineker will follow through on his promise (and hopefully nothing else), and that prospect is something that delights Claudio RanieriL

And it's quite clear he's not the only one, the BBC could be in for a major boost in ratings.
If this doesn't break some sort of tele viewing record I pledge to spend an entire day at home in just my pants. https://t.co/Kv9Pv5bZj2

They may be milking the whole "will he/wont he" thing, but there's no doubting that all eyes will be on BBC come Saturday night.
