Gary Lineker has blamed his ‘old age’ for forgetting to wear a face mask after photos emerged of him shopping naked at M&S.

The 59-year-old Match Of The Day presenter was pictured by a member of the audience in M&S dessert aisle in Barnes, south-west London on Sunday.

Although he has previously criticized ‘snowflakes’ for refusing to wear a mask, Lineker failed to cover his mouth and nose with no mask in sight as he wandered the store.

Lineker took to Twitter to apologize for the blunder, writing: “In my old age I went to a store and forgot to put on my mask.

“I wondered why people gave me daggers. Performed after a few minutes and put it in a hurry. I felt awful and embarrassed. My apologies to those present.

Comedian David Baddiel joked, “I think we all know you can’t have one that fits your ears. “

He added, “PS, I love Gary. Even his ears.

Earlier this year, Lineker made her views very clear on wearing masks to prevent the spread of covid-19.

He tweeted on April 17: “How can there be a debate about whether we should wear a mask? Even if it’s only a percent chance of making you safer.

“Even if it’s only a percent chance of preventing you from giving it to someone else.” Even if it only saves one life, it must be beneficial.

The 38-year-old eagle-eyed buyer who spotted Lineker in M&S without a mask on Sunday told The Sun: “It’s just hypocrisy on another level. He had even tweeted a photo of himself wearing a mask recently outside that same M&S store and told people to wear masks in supermarkets. If it was anyone else, I wouldn’t mind that much.

“But it’s frustrating for someone who is trying to take on as much moral value as him. “

Responding to the Chair of Global Public Health, Professor Devi Sridhar’s call for the public to wear masks, Lineker tweeted on July 2: “It seems like the most obvious thing in the world.

“I don’t understand why anyone would object to wearing a mask. A painless gesture to make sure you don’t spread the virus to others and ideal for hiding bad breath.

A month later, the presenter tweeted again on the topic, “Why would anyone object to wearing a mask in a store?

“Not really an ordeal. What a land of snowflakes we have become.
