Football presenter Adrian Chiles has recounted how he almost missed a gig to cover an England match after he was "swept off" by a fast-flowing river.
Chiles, 45, told the Radio Times he was with fellow pundit Lee Dixon in Berne, Switzerland when the mishap occurred.
After jumping into the water and swimming for a while, the pair realised the banks of the river were moving unusually quickly.
Dixon told the magazine how they both managed to grab an overhanging branch and pull themselves out, making it to the match just in time.
"We very nearly had to do that game by live satellite link from the Black Sea or wherever the river would have spat us out," he added.
