To promote the return of the English Premier League and as a result, Match of the Day, the BBC’s is teasing that Gary Lineker will present the show wearing only his underwear.
Lineker in December said he would present the show almost in commando if his old team Leicester City won the league.
Against all the odds, the Foxes took the top spot in a historic and highly improbable victory.
YES! If Leicester win the @premierleague I'll do the first MOTD of next season in just my undies.

If the host pulls through on his wager, he will present MOTD unadorned by his trusty shirt and trousers on Saturday 13 August.
The BBC released the following image, hinting that he may well make good on his wager.

Leicester manger Claudio Ranieri reportedly demanded the wager is honoured too.
"I want to watch!"
