John Ter­ry has blast­ed the BBC as a ‘dis­grace’ after the broad­cast­er used a mock­ing ‘Mis­s­tiano Penal­do’ cap­tion dur­ing a replay of Cris­tiano Ronal­do’s missed penal­ty in Por­tu­gal’s Euro 2024 shootout vic­to­ry over Slovenia.

The Por­tu­gal cap­tain was left in tears after his extra-time spot-kick was saved, but he sub­se­quent­ly scored in the shootout to send his team through to the quar­ter-finals. How­ev­er, the BBC’s attempt at humor with the ‘Mis­s­tiano Penal­do’ cap­tion sparked out­rage, with Ter­ry among those con­demn­ing the move as ‘unpro­fes­sion­al’.

The inci­dent has high­light­ed the crit­i­cism Eng­land’s play­ers have faced dur­ing the tour­na­ment, with pun­dits like Gary Linek­er and Alan Shear­er also voic­ing con­cerns over the team’s performances.

As the Three Lions pre­pare for their quar­ter-final clash with Switzer­land, the focus will be on let­ting their foot­ball do the talk­ing on the pitch.

The BBC’s jibe at Ronal­do’s penal­ty miss has drawn wide­spread con­dem­na­tion, with fans brand­ing it ‘shame­ful’ and a sign of the ‘Tik­Tokza­tion of foot­ball punditry’. 

As the debate over media cov­er­age of play­ers’ men­tal health con­tin­ues, this lat­est episode has once again put the spot­light on how top ath­letes are treat­ed in the pub­lic eye.
