Clang clang

A top class clanger from Gary Richardson, the BBC’s ringside interviewer at the Olympic boxing semi-final won by Amir Khan, a 17-year-old boy from Bolton.
“Well done,” said Richardson, winding up the interview in his usual way. “Go and have a drink.”
It was an ill-advised comment on three levels:
a) Khan was brought up a devout Muslim;
b) he is underrage;
c) even if he wasn’t a 17-year-old teetotaller he would be unlikely to have a drink two days before the final, the biggest fight of his life.
What a berk.
