Peter Crouch reassures fans he is still alive after giant 'body bag' is wheeled out during Sky Sports coverage

PETER CROUCH joked he was "ok" after fans speculated that he was in a "body bag" wheeled out on live TV.

Liverpool had just kept their title dream alive after a 2-1 win away at Southampton.

Southampton players and family had just finished off their traditional lap of honour after their final home game of season.

But as Jamie Carragher, Jamie Redknapp and presenter Kelly Cates talked through the final stages, a very long trolley covered with a giant black sheet was wheeled past.

And poor Peter Crouch got caught up in some Twitter frenzy.

Social media poster 'Jimathon' wrote: "Thought Peter Crouch had died for a sec."

It even promoted the man himself to retweet the post.

Crouch, who works as a pundit for Sky Sports, tweeted: "I’m ok guys thanks for your concern."
