Natalie Sawyer gets soaked to the skin as Sky Sports News presenter is drenched by sprinklers at England training session

LIVE TV is a risky business to get in to.

And so it proved to be for popular Sky Sports News presenter Natalie Sawyer as she reported on Sam Allardyce’s first day of training with his new England squad.

Big Sam and Wayne Rooney led the Three Lions onto the pitch at St George’s Park, and Sawyer was on hand to provide football fans with all the latest updates.

But after getting some in-depth insights from Mark Sampson and Aidy Boothroyd, Sawyer’s day took a turn for the worse.

The glamorous host had just had her live feed cut when the sprinkler system turned on, soaking her to the skin.

Sky Sports producer Gemma Davies tweeted the dramatic event, telling followers: “Uh oh! The perils of live TV… @nataliesawyer gets drenched by the @StGeorgesPark sprinklers!”

But Sawyer seemed to take the drenching in her stride, knowing the embarrassing moment wasn’t broadcast to the world.

And with Britain still basking in a mini heatwave, the sprinklers probably proved to be a smart way for her to cool down as Allardyce put his men through their paces ahead of the World Cup qualifier against Slovakia this weekend.
