Gervais to donate £1000 to charity after Lineker completes Twitter dare

Comedian Ricky Gervais says he will donate £1000 to a children's hospital after BBC Sport presenter Gary Lineker went through with a dare put to him on Twitter during Portugal's Euro 2012 victory over the Czech Republic:


“@garylineker:" I am watching you on my TV. I dare you to use the phrase "it was a game of two halves". I would enjoy that.


@rickygervais I will suffer the abuse that will follow my uttering of the cliché, just because it's you.


“@garylineker:" Hahaha. You did it! You are a man of honour. I will donate £1000 to Great Ormond Street Hospital. The boy done good. Cheers
