Martin Tyler commentated for Sky's rivals during Champions League match and left everyone stunned

Tyler is back - but not where you might expect.

Martin Tyler commentated on a Champions League match for one of Sky Sports' main rivals on Wednesday - leaving fans shocked.

The 78-year-old left Sky Sports in the summer, having been their lead Premier League commentator since the division's inception in 1992.

Prior to his arrival at Sky in 1990, the iconic commentator had spent many years with ITV, and also took on a number of freelance roles across Europe and on major international tournaments.

Tyler still works for Premier League Productions, and is regularly heard across the airwaves this season despite Peter Drury taking over his role at Sky. He is even on the coaching staff at National League South side Dartford.

Meanwhile, many will remember the veteran commentating on Champions League matches when Sky held the rights between 2003 and 2015.

He has also worked for broadcasters in the US and Australia on Premier League and European coverage in recent years - also fans were in a shock during the latest round of Champions League matches.

On Wednesday, Tyler picked up the microphone to cover the 'dead rubber' between Porto and Shakhtar Donetsk - for none other than TNT Sports.

You can watch a clip of his commentary below.

Taking to X (Twitter) during the game, one fan wrote: "Am I having a fever dream or is Martin Tyler actually doing commentary on TNT Sports?"

Another said: "Wait what, Martin Tyler works for TNT Sports now?"

A third added: "Martin Tyler is on the Porto - Shakhtar game!?!?"

Speaking after his departure from Sky before the start of the current Premier League season, Tyler said: "It has been a privilege to play a small part in the broadcasting history of the greatest league in the world.

"Along the way I have worked alongside legions of wonderful professionals in all aspects of the television industry. I thank them all for their support and expertise. It has been a honour to be a member of a very gifted team."
