Pougatch presented the channel’s coverage of Euro 2020, alongside pundits Keane, Ian Wright and Gary Neville.

As England made their run to the final, Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” swept the nation – being gleefully belted out by fans across the country.

Discussing the phenomenon, the Manchester United legend made a surprising admission live on air.

Harking back to the amazing moment while appearing on the Life Goals podcast, Pougatch said of Diamond: “I’m not entirely sure he knew what he was talking about and who Gareth Southgate was.

“What was really fun that evening was, as the crowd started singing Sweet Caroline, Wrighty was singing it.

“Then suddenly out of nowhere, Gary Neville says, ‘Roy, you like Neil Diamond’.

“And Roy goes, ‘Yeah I went to a Neil Diamond concert – I had a row with the woman next door to me because she was repeating all the lyrics.’

“I’m like, ‘Roy, you can’t have a row with someone at a Neil Diamond concert, for Christ’s sake!’”


Keane, 52, was in typically good form on Sky Sports Super Sunday alongside fellow pundits Micah Richards and Daniel Sturridge yesterday.

The Irishman’s facial expression had fans in stitches as Sturridge said “keep it funky with ya boy”.

While he also rolled his eyes when the former Liverpool and Chelsea striker did an impression of him.

He then told Mo Salah to “sit down and shut up” after the Reds star threw a tantrum.

While he also struggled to keep a straight face as Sturridge launched into an incredible rendition of Usher’s Nice & Slow.
