JAMIE CARRAGHER almost jumped out of his skin after being spooked by a police horse live on camera.
The Sky Sports pundit, 44, was discussing Thomas Tuchel's sacking by Chelsea at the time of the incident.
Facing the camera, Carragher had no idea two police horses were walking behind him – until they had gone past.
Carragher quickly jumped away from the animal while looking over his shoulder, clearly feeling it came too close for comfort.
Football fans found Carra's reaction hilarious and mocked the former Liverpool star.
One supporter commented: "He thought it was Ronaldo". A reference to the Portuguese snubbing Carragher for a handshake a few weeks ago.

Another added: "Used to be surrounded by donkeys."
And a third said: "When you see Martinez win another header."
Carragher also made fun of himself, tweeting the video alongside a caption that reads: "Defenders in the Premier League when Haaland is about! 😂😂."
The pundit was stopped midflow talking about Graham Potter potentially succeeding Tuchel at Stamford Bridge.
It comes as:
- Chelsea ask for permission to speak to Graham Potter over vacant manager role.
- Zinedine Zidane and Mauricio Pochettino are among the favourites with bookies to replace Thomas Tuchel as John Terry priced at 33/1.
- The Blues' brutal statement announces German relieved of his duties just 100 days after Todd Boehly takes charge.
- Chelsea news LIVE: All the latest after Tuchel's axing.
- Tuchel informed of sacking in ruthless conference call, minutes after arriving at Blues' training ground.
