BBC's Mike Bushell falls into swimming pool during interview with athletes

Coming in live from Australia's Gold Coast on BBC Breakfast, Mike Bushell fell into a swimming pool whilst speaking to United Kingdom swimmers competing in the Commonwealth Games. Perhaps that should be extended to cover water-based interviews, as Mike Bushell would no doubt agree. Bushell was chatting with the England Commonwealth Games swimmers - Sarah Vasey, Adam Peaty, Siobhan-Marie O'Connor, Ben Proud and James Guy - when things took an unexpected turn.

The Guardian reported that the journalist said that he was careful because of the sound system he was wearing.

The father-of-three was in Australia's Gold Coast speaking to British swimmers competing in the Commonwealth Games.

The fall came mere seconds before Mike warned he had to be "very careful" not to get his sound pack wet as they sat with their feet dipped in the water.

In the BBC Breakfast studio, presenters Charlie Stayt and Louise Minchin shared their amusement with viewers.

"Bye, Mike, it hasn't been boring". As the athletes were sitting on the edge of a small pool, Bushell didn't see the step on the floor of the pool and fell into the water.

He managed to complete his interview five minutes later, before adding: 'I thought it was a jacuzzi or a kids pool, I didn't realise there was a step'.

"Congratulations", he told the sports stars who are now competing in the Commonwealth Games, before slipping and shouting: "Whoops, I didn't see the step".
