Branislav Ivanovic Being Told He Would Miss The Champions League Final Is Still The Most Brutal Interview Ever

We recall one of the most awkward moments in television history as Sky Sports present Geoff Shreeves breaks the unfortunate news that Branislav Ivanovic will miss the 2011/12 Champions League final live on air.

Chelsea and Barcelona had just played out an incredible semi-final second leg as the Blues secured a spot in the final after a famous result at the Camp Nou.

But Ivanovic's joy was short lived as he found out that he would miss the showcase fixture because of his yellow card.

During the post-match interview he was completely oblivious to the situation until Shreeves dropped a huge bombshell.

The defender turned to teammate Ashley Cole for reassurance then Shreeves continued to deliver bad news by confirming his suspension.

Cheers, Geoff.

Ivanovic wasn't the only player to miss the occasion. Raul Meireles, John Terry - who could forget?! - and Ramires were also suspended for the final.
