Breakfast Television takes heat for Ronaldo gaffe

Breakfast Television has taken some heat from the sporting world in the wake of a rather poorly executed birthday shout-out to Cristiano Ronaldo, who turned 30 yesterday. You see, BT's birthday wishes were accompanied by a photo of Sergio Aguero in place of the Real Madrid star.

Now, we're not first and foremost a soccer town, but that's the equivalent of wishing Sidney Crosby happy birthday with a photo of Alex Ovechkin or the like. Sports sites quickly latched onto the error and expressed their disbelief that such a mix up was possible. And, needless to say, social media was a flutter with responses to the little bit of drama, which you know someone just feels terribly embarrassed about. Oh well, here's to a new day, BT.
