The BBC made a huge error when panning to the Argentina fans after Lionel Messi and co had defeated France to win the World Cup on Sunday. Host Gary Lineker alongside pundits Alan Shearer, Rio Ferdinand and Pablo Zabaleta were speaking over the reaction from fans when the broadcaster accidently showed one Argentine fan with her top off.
Several viewers were not happy that the fan was shown and vented their frustration to the broadcaster on social media, after the camera swiftly moved away once they had realised the error that had been made.
The fan was at the front of the crowd and had a banner held underneath her, before she ducked away and the BBC cameras quickly panned to the other scenes in the Argentina crowd of fans cheering after their penalty shoot-out win over France.
The majority of the fans inside the Lusail Stadium in Qatar were supporting Argentina, and were emotional as Gonzalo Montiel’s penalty ensured that Messi would win his first-ever World Cup.

Messi scored the first Argentina spot kick, as French star Kylian Mbappe also scored the first penalty for his nation but misses from Randal Kolo Muani and Aurelien Tchouameni ensured that the trophy would be heading to Buenos Aires.
In a game that will go down in history, Messi scored the opening goal of the game in the first half from the penalty spot. He sent Hugo Lloris the wrong way after Angel Di Maria was tripped inside the area.

Di Maria then turned goalscorer for Argentina’s second, before a Mbappe brace within two minutes in the second half tied the game and sent it to extra time.
Messi scored Argentina’s third by stabbing the ball home, but Mbappe claimed only the second-ever World Cup final hat-trick with another penalty as the tournament had to be decided with a shoot-out.
Argentina won 4-2 on spot kicks, sending their fans into raptures and also saw ex-Argentina and Manchester City defender Zabaleta break down in tears in the BBC studio.
