10:06 GMT, 24 September 2012
Embarrassed BBC host Colin Murray was forced to issue a grovelling apology to Match of the Day 2 viewers late on Sunday night after guest Freddie Ljungberg delivered a live four-letter gaffe.
Former Arsenal star Ljungberg was speaking about his memories of the Gunners unbeaten 2003-04 ‘Invincibles’ team, when he made the slip up, saying his old team-mate Lauren would ‘kick the s***’ out of anybody who fouled him.

Whoops: Freddie Ljungberg was frank about how Lauren used to play
Sorry! Host Colin Murray (right) had to apologise
The Swedish midfielder retired in August and appeared on the BBC show to offer insight and analysis.
‘I had Lauren behind me for example,’ explained Ljungberg while talking about the set-up of the team.
‘If anyone kicked me he would kick the s*** out of them.’
Ljungberg asked any offended viewers to excuse his language, while Murray swiftly apologised and informed his audience that the excerpt would be removed on the iPlayer version of the show.
