TICKER look at this! Viewers of Sky Sports News were put under a spell of hysterics when the rolling headlines streamed out gibberish.
A wonky-worded warning that the “speel cjeck is nott work sing anymora” entertained armchair sports fans as it repeated itself along a dodgy ticker at the bottom of the screen.

Sky’s ticker shocker made the broadcaster look like a real basket case with its timing, as the presenters were discussing the NBA.
But it lightened the mood on social media as fans rushed to tease the news that was breaking bad.
Ticker taunts included the understated: “I don’t think Sky Sports News’ spell check is working anymore…”
Another suggested it must have been a quiet hour for sport, saying: “Interesting breaking news on sky sports news.”
And a third also teased the broadcaster, joking: “Sky Sports breaking news is really scraping the barrel right now.”
The spicy ticker came a day after Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane also faced some unexpected language – on his acting debut.
