Sky Sports were forced to apologise for the language used by Kevin De Bruyne during Manchester City 's clash with Tottenham.
As fans continue to watch on from home, the shouts of the players in empty stadiums can often be heard by those tuning in.
This afternoon it was the turn of De Bruyne to be picked up by a nearby microphone, remonstrating with the linesman during the first-half.
As the Belgian went to take a corner with his side 1-0 down after a Heung-Min Son goal, he was furiously shouting at the assistant referee near him.
"Ref, look at where the line is," De Bruyne could be heard shouting.
"Look where the f***ing line is."
Sky Sports were then forced to apologise live on air for anyone offended by De Bruyne's foul language.
"[We] apologise if you heard any inappropriate language," they said.
"If you're watching without the stadium effects, you probably would have a word you shouldn't have.
"Sorry for that."
De Bruyne was clearly frustrated after his side fell behind to a Son goal early in the encounter.
