Lineker and Match of the Day pundits in hysterics over "world record" scream

Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker and pundits Ian Wright and Dion Dublin couldn't help but mock Alexandre Lacazette's "world record" scream during Arsenal's 1-1 draw with Burnley on Saturday.

The French forward could be heard bellowing when he went down under a challenge from Erik Pieters in the second half of the match, although he was soon able to get up and carry on with the game.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche mocked the screams after the match, and they were also a subject of much mirth on Match of the Day when Lineker introduced a 'scream-o-meter' to measure how loud they were.

"This season we've really noticed that footballers do scream a lot when they're touched, even very mildly," said Lineker during the programme.

"But I think we may have the scream of the season."

Over footage of Lacazette's tumble, his yells and their measurement on the 'scream-o-meter', Lineker turned to Wright and added: "It's a world record Ian, isn't it?"

When Dublin then pointed out that Lacazette was fine to carry on in the game, Lineker added: "Yes. No Lacazette was hurt in the filming of the incident."

Then when signing off at the very end of the programme, Lineker said: "We're all off to practice our screaming," prompting all three ex-players to yell out, with Lineker even falling off his chair and grabbing hold of his leg.

Burnley boss Dyche was in a sarcastic mood when discussing the screams after the match, saying: "The screaming, some real good screaming today.

"Some real good screaming today, on the scream-o-meter probably the highest I’ve heard for a long time and there’s some pretty high ones."
