Alexandre Lacazette gave one of the most accidentally hilarious post match interviews you're likely to hear, after losing his voice during Lyon's loss to Monaco, as you can hear in the video below.
Lacazette moved back to his boyhood and hometown club in the summer, after five years in the Premier League, once his contract at Arsenal ran out.
He was then able to help persuade Corentin Tolisso to join him back at the club, having both left France for new pastures in the same summer, back in 2017.
It hasn't been completely plain sailing for the forward since his return though, missing a pre season friendly after being attacked by wasps during training.
In an incident that almost sounds like it could have been written into a cartoon, or the Man vs Bee series starring Rowan Atkinson, the 31-year-old was stung 12 times!
But if that was more horror than comedy, Sunday's interview is nothing but giggles, for the rest of us at least, as Lacazette's squeaky voice can't help but entertain.
There would have been far less laughter coming from the Lyon dressing room, as Peter Bosz's team lost for the second time in a week.
They turned up in the French principality having lost to Lorient away on Wednesday night and failed to turn things around against Monaco.
Defender Benoit Badiashile gave the visitors the lead in the 55th minute and it was another defender, Guillermo Maripan who doubled their advantage in the 63rd minute.
Karl Toko Ekambi made it 2-1 in the 81st minute but it wasn't enough for Bosz's side to avoid defeat, which was only their second of the season but coming so close after the first will be a worry.

Elsewhere in Ligue 1 at the weekend, Paris Saint-Germain continued their inevitable charge towards another Ligue 1 title, with a win over Brest.
It wasn't as easy as Christophe Galtier may have hoped for, ending just 1-0. The goal came from a brilliant ball from Lionel Messi, expertly finished by Neymar.
Whilst the team continues to win, there has been plenty of reports of dysfunctioning relationships in the squad, specifically between Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
Galtier claimed there were no issues but once again Mbappe was on the end of criticism, this time for 'blocking' Lionel Messi's goal bound shot.
