A 'Naked' Gary Lineker Has Been Spotted At Manchester City vs Burnley
Remember when Gary Lineker appeared on Match of the Day wearing just a pair of undies after betting he would 'bare all' on TV if Leicester City won the Premier League? Yeah, me too.
Well, the former England striker is at it again, this afternoon.
Before the Premier League tie at the Etihad, Manchester City and Burnley fans were handed a leaflet containing 'naked' pictures of Lineker slapped across the front and back page.

On Friday afternoon, Lineker took to Twitter to clear up the confusion, although many are still baffled by the bizarre pictures.
He said: "Lose another bet? All will be revealed....well, not all hopefully."

Although nobody knows the reason behind the pictures, the adverts featuring 'naked' pictures of Gary Lineker have been blocked from the London Underground after breaching rules around 'sexual' displays.
According to the Daily Mail, the campaign 'was due to launch on Monday' but Transport for London rejected them because they 'depicted men, women or children in a sexual manner or display nude figures in a sexual context'.
A spokesman said the following about the advert: 'We worked closely with TFL to ensure the adverts that will appear on Monday are suitable for the environment.
'TFL have been incredibly helpful at every step of the way to ensure app parties are happy with the final images'
On the way up the stairs to my seat for some reason there was a half naked picture of Gary Lineker

We thought we'd seen the last of Lineker's nakedness. We'll never forget the moment when a giant pair of blue underpants were unveiled in Leicester city centre in support of Gary Lineker's antics on MOTD.
Never change, Gary.
