Carry on Commentating!

Chapeau! to BBC Radio 5 Live presenters who showed just how professional they were yesterday when their desk collapsed during the final moments of the Tour de France stage 4.

Rob Hayles and Rob Hatch managed to seamlessly continue their broadcast as their table lunged forward, taking with it race notes, equipment and tasty macaroons during the final bunch sprint. Technicians stepped in to hold the desk up so that the race monitor didn't crash to the floor in the last few metres of the race.

"We're about to hit the bottom," declared Rob Hatch just as his desk decided to take a tumble, but he carried on as though nothing had happened: "and give the final climb up towards the finish. And it is going to be Peter Sagan who is there..." Unfortunately his race prediction was wrong with Marcel Kittel coming through with a stage win in the nail-biting finish - but you can't fault the pair's professionalism throughout.

BBC 5 Live Sport's Twitter feed called it DESK-A-GEDDON at the Tour de France. "It was a thrilling end to S4 - and not just on the road!"
