BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker, 44, detailed the moment he was left speechless after an encounter with Manchester United player Nemanja Vidic, 39. The now retired professional footballer chatted with the broadcaster, as Dan commented on an awkward moment between them.
It comes after a social media user called for comments on a piece they planned to write about Nemanja.
Taking to Twitter, the person in question wrote: “Tomorrow’s Everybody Loves.. piece on @F365 is about Nemanja Vidic. Let’s have your comments for inclusion.”
Dan took the opportunity to reply, as he shared a “magnificent” memory about the Serbian-born footballer.
In view of his 710,000 followers, the Breakfast host penned: “At the end of an interview after a defeat, I asked him what the team would learn from what happened.
“He laughed for 20 seconds and walked off. Magnificent.”
Nemanja most notably played for Manchester United from 2006 to 2014 and was part of the Serbia national team from 2002 to 2011.
The Breakfast presenter recently addressed a social media user after they called out the Breakfast’s sports coverage.
The channel was accused of dismissing Richard Bland’s victory at the British Masters, as the viewer fumed, “golf is never mentioned” on the show.
The social media user’s issue concerned a supposed lack of golf coverage on Breakfast and believed the show had disregarded golf champion Richard Bland’s tournament win at the weekend.
It comes after British golfer Bland, 48, claimed his first European Tour title – on the 478th attempt.
Taking to the micro-blogging site, the social media user penned: “Come on @BBC… Richard Bland wins his 1st event in 478 starts on the @EuropeanTour #BetfredBritishMasters hosted by @Danny_Willett.
“Oldest player to win & he’s not mentioned, in fact, the golf is never mentioned.”

Dan, who is a keen golf-enthusiast, hit back on Twitter as he confirmed the golf was covered extensively.
In view of his 710,000 followers, Dan replied: “Hi… only just seen this.
“@blandy73’s amazing win was on Saturday and the show was on Monday. His win did feature on the Sunday show.
“Despite that, I also spoke at length about his win on Monday and what made it so special. It was wonderful. Have a good one.”
Elsewhere, Dan who fronted Football Focus for over a decade announced his exit from the sports programme last month.
Taking to social media, he penned: “Hello, I have some news. This is going to be my last season presenting Football Focus. It’s been a real pleasure and an amazing 12 years, and I can honestly say I’ve loved every single second of it.
“I’m really proud about the job that we’ve done, the changes we’ve made to the show, the issues we’ve looked at, and at a time when the football landscape is changing immeasurably. But, having said all that, after 12 years it’s time for someone else to take the reins.”
Dan will present his final episode for Football Focus on May 22.
